L33t translator

Here I introduce a dynamic 733+ translator an on the fly translator similar to Google translate.

Where i can see the translator in action?
You can here in the demo page [[ not much of an eyecandy ]]

What is l33t?
"Leet, also known as eleet or leetspeak, is an alternative alphabet for the English language that is used primarily on the Internet. It uses various combinations of ASCII characters to replace Latinate letters. For example, leet spellings of the word leet include 1337 and l33t; eleet may be spelled 31337 or 3l33t." [[ wikipedia ]]

So how it works?
Its just a simple map of characters that is been replaced by a simple JavaScript function.

Where can i get the source of it?
Indeed view source :0) The code can be cloned from my script repo

P.S : Do leave your suggestions and comments below (:

Update: thanks to Harsha Senior Software Engineer at Yahoo! for identifying performance issues and suggesting suitable changes.

Update I made a service of the same here where one can post data to URI and get back l33t
