Welcome to ZigZagText.com!
This site is going to publish a new children's story each week in the Zig Zag
Text format, where alternate lines text in a document are reversed in direction.
In the first line, the words go from left to right, and in the second line they
go from right to left, and so on. I believe this makes the document easier to
read, because your eye does not have to jump from the right side of the page all
the way back to the left after reading each line. This printing style seems to
be especially helpful for dyslexic readers, who often lose their place in a
document.As a side note, it turns out that a variant of the ZigZagText called Boustrophedon was used in antiquity.
