37.18 Reading Rot13 Messages

Mailing list messages that might offend some readers are sometimes encoded in a simple code called rot13—so named because it rotates the alphabet by 13 letters. This code is not for secrecy, as it provides none; rather, it enables those who might be offended to avoid seeing the real text of the message.

To view a buffer which uses the rot13 code, use the command M-x rot13-other-window. This displays the current buffer in another window which applies the code when displaying the text.
