Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is zalgo text? (Definition)

A Zalgo text is a message written with many diacritics using Unicode encoding.

How to write a message with accents everywhere?

Diacritics are symbols that modify letters or characters by adding a modifying grapheme to them. The most common diacritics are the acute accent é, the grave accent à, the circumflex î or the umlaut ö, but there are several dozen others like the tilde ñ, the cedilla ç, the macron, the brief etc.

These characters are coded with a Unicode code from the Combining diacritics marks table with addresses U+0300 to U+036F.

Example: dCode can be changed to d̹͍C̀̃o͒͟ḋ̇ẽ̗

Some characters are very small, others are bigger, dCode randomly draws one or two diacritic.

How to clean a Zalgo text with diacritic?

A simple method is to remove the accents, for example by going through the character string and keeping only the ASCII characters.

The other solution is to remove the Unicode codes from U+0300 to U+036F (but it is possible that some accents remain because some letters are encoded directly with accents in Unicode).
