    You've confused me now, are you talking about leek? Or leet? That's because leet means elite, I assume. As a side note, leet is more often speeled as 1337, in all numbers in otherwords rather than with an L.

    Sorry, typo. Where I put leek you should read leet. Anyway, the machine does not distinguish between leet and elite. If the explanation is that the program recognizes elite as a word that is always 'pronounced' leet, then it has some intelligence after all / it is more than just a symbol converter. Am I right?

    You're right-- it probably lists a couple words (however, that is the most obvious word for it to have, so I don't know how much else is in it).

    this may help in terms of the translation:

    it's a python tutorial for one.
