Various languages have Diacritical marks, like ~ to make ñ, or ` to make è. Some languages allow you to combine more than one diacritical mark. Unicode supports that, letting you combine multiple marks from a pretty healthy list of marks. A lot of them come from the International Phonetic Alphabet, used by linguists to mark with excruciating detail exactly what was going on in the mouth of a speaker. And your browser turns that Unicode into just what you see on the screen: a letter with a very large number of decorations above and below it. Zalgo text (zalgo text discord) generators combine lots and lots of marks to make some pretty silly-looking text. Which, when used more and more in a block of text, does a great job of representing the increasing frustration of, say, a programmer who has been asked for the thousandth time why you can’t make a regular expression that matches nested HTML tags.

This is obviously a spam thread, but also since we're all here, in this spam thread, here's an actual article:
Sir, I can do you a nice SEO.
Zalgo text uses combining diacritical marks stacked on top of one another to create a creepy glitching effect. Diacritical marks are symbols added to letters. They're mostly used to describe how a letter should be sounded, but have other uses too.
