Sorry to say that the wingdings to ASCII conversion was planned nearly 20 years ago when M$ put out Windoze 3.0.

Q33NY, a well placed hoax in September 2001, as reported, wasn't the flight number of one of the terrorist planes (Wingdings Hoax).
It was AA 077, AA 011, UA 093 and UA 175.
The correct registration numbers (->): N644AA (# AA 077), N334AA (# AA 011), N591UA (# UA 093), N612UA (# UA 175)
"Wingdings" was designed by Bigelow and Holmes, an outside vendor.
They denied that Microsoft intentionally designed the secret message.
Prof. Charles Bigelow confirmed that his company provided the symbols, but insisted that Microsoft made the final "mapping" decisions
assigning his symbols to specific keys on the keyboard.
He's Professor of Digital Typography at Stanford for several years.
With partner Kris Holmes he runs the Bigelow & Holmes studio.
Their most significant work is the Lucida font family, perhaps the first serious attempt to make type look good
on low-resolution output. Lucida's accompanying pi font, Wingdings, has long been included with Windows.
NOTE: typing IRAQ WAR (in caps) with wingdings also shows some intersting icons
also try NYPD "
