** And, taking it to a ridiculous level, ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious''. At least [[Film/TheFastAndTheFuriousTokyoDrift the third film]] wasn't called ''3 Fast 3 Furious''. Though that didn't stop theatres from marking it as that on their marquees. (Or the inevitable [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/222150 NewgroundsPoop]].)

* 7up briefly made a beverage called dnL (look at it upside-down), which was basically 7up with caffeine. Also green in a clear white bottle.
* Number plates/license plates.

* Number plates/license plates.Vanity and personalized license plates for vehicles. In most places, symbols aren't allowed, but numbers are, and every Department of Motor Vehicles (at least in the US) has a list of plate combinations that are not allowed because of what they spell. Using a number instead of a letter most likely won't get past them if you're trying to get one of those forbidden combinations.



* General language/overseas culture examples:
** [=URLs=] with numbers replacing words are surprisingly popular in China. Probably helps that they're easy to type and remember.
** In the Japanese language, there's a LOT of ways[[note]]due to containing native, Chinese, and English pronunciations of numbers[[/note]] [[GoroawaseNumber to replace kanas (and sometimes whole words) with numbers]]. Remember this when looking at Japanese screen-names and such with seemingly random numbers in them.
** Often when someone is trying to speak Arabic online without an Arabic language pack, they'll use numbers in the place of letters of the Arabic alphabet. Maybe not a true example though, ''because'' those letters don't exist in the English alphabet and are usually represented in print by special punctuation that the computer may also not be able to make.
*** Ma3ak 7a2 (loosely translates to "you're right")
** The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tresillo tresillo]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuatrillo cuatrillo]] are modified numerals, used as letters in some post-colonial Mayan languages.
** Just as above, this combined with a variant of XtremeKoolLetterz comes up when trying to represent the International Phonetic Alphabet in ASCII. Of course, there's not much point to it anymore, since most programs you'd pass an IPA input to can now handle Unicode.
