Creating Vanity Passwords

The Vanity Plate:

We've all seen license plates that are customized with initials, names, or personal messages. They are sometimes referred to as 'vanity' plates. By taking a combination of letters and numbers, a phrase can be spelled out without using complete words. You can use this method to create passwords, too.

Vanity Examples:

Phrase Creates this password
Too late again 2L8again
Music is for me MusikS4me
Day after today dayFter2day
