The Rake


  15 February 2006


Splitting a suspicious word with random characters and use a <DIV> with float: right to move the characters to the right raking then away so that the suspicious word is revealed.

Submitted by Nick FitzGerald.


Working example:

Non-working example:

Example HTML code

<FONT face=Arial size=2>
V<span style="float:right">c</span>
I<span style="float:right">j</span>
A<span style="float:right">m</span>
G<span style="float:right">o</span>
R<span style="float:right">a</span>
A<span style="float:right">a</span>

The same trick has been seen with the inline styles replaced with a class defined later in the same message (Nick FitzGerald once more):

C<span class=qg43>f</span>
I<span class=qg43>m</span>
A<span class=qg43>z</span>
L<span class=qg43>t</span>
I<span class=qg43>k</span>
S<span class=qg43>n</span>
