Italic Text Generator

Converts normal text into unicode italic text which you can copy and paste.

Generates italic text which you can copy and paste into facebook, twitter, instagram and other social media posts and statuses.

Wondering how this works? It’s pretty simple. There are a bunch of characters that exist, but are not included on your keyboard. In fact, there are over 100,000 of them! Emojis are examples of characters that aren’t on a standard keyboard. So these italic characters are just characters in the Unicode standard that you don’t see as common as the "normal" alphabetical characters (like the ones you’re reading right now). That’s why you’re able to copy and paste this italic text into your instagram bio, Facebook posts, etc.

There are actually quite a few "pseudo-alphabets" that exist in the Unicode standard, and you’ll notice that I’ve included a few others such as the "cursive" and "script" alphabets. These were all added in the early days of Unicode mostly to suit the purposes of various large companies/industries that needed to be pursuaded to use the Unicode standard. For example, chemists and math-related fields tended to use italic characters to denote specific things, and so they needed a set of italic characters that they could use in situations where they could not apply after-the-fact styling to the text. It’s often much easier to just use italic characters rather than normal characters with a whole bunch of logic built in to handle styling of those characters (special text editors, etc.). So that’s how we got these italic "fonts" (even though they’re not actually fonts).

I’ve included a bunch of other fancy text "fonts" besides the italic and cursive ones – hope you find those interesting/useful!
