The box looks good now, but there are still 3 non-printable characters (on my computer at least). They are just before the word "This", between the word "Dhurri" and the apostrophy, and after the word "Helmung" inside the quote.
I didn't find a good image, but I found a "secret" one :) I'm sure I'm not the first to discover this, but I noticed that there are Dethek runes in the watermark or background graphic of the pages of the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting 3rd edition! The runes on the even numbered pages translate to "zhentil keep is also one of" and the odd numbered pages translate to "bases of operation of the zhentarim or black network". Look at pages 28 and 75 for mostly unobscured examples of this watermark (your mileage may vary). It is located about an inch above the page number near the bottom. Maybe one of you with better eyes can verify this and see if I missed any capitals. Note that it uses the original runes for "n" and "o" as described in the Notes section of this article. If these images can be captured and enhanced, I think they would make a fine addition to this page and perhaps bring this Easter egg to the attention of readers who click on the Featured Article. :)
Holy crap! Well spotted! I knew there was writing in Thorass, Dethek, and Espruar in the emblem on the front cover, but didn't pay much attention to the background. That text should appears on all the pages of 3e FR books that use that background.
There's another set of writing running diagonally across the odd-numbered pages.
My best guess at the diagonal text is "forgotten realms summoning magic" based on staring at pages 239, 309, and 71. Anyone able to verify? Can someone scan these pages (or better ones, if you can find them) at high resolution and use the "best" JPG compression (or no compression if possible)? I volunteer to try and patch them together into an image we can use on this wiki page. This is actually quite exciting.
I believe it's "forgotten realms magic summoning magic". The word "magic" is repeated.
Oi, that would be enormously complicated, and stitching the scans together won't look pretty. You could look around the net and see if anyone's already extracted the background page image. The sepia page could look pretty cool as a wiki background image.
Ah, look at the web enhancements that use these pages. They tend not to cover the whole page in text, and are likely digital copies of the originals. Look at the last page of the City of Splendors: Waterdeep Web Enhancement "Environs of Waterdeep", that gives a nice clear image.
It should be noted that when the Dethek alphabet was reprinted in each campaign setting, they used the images from the last campaign setting, so N and O never changed. It's only Dwarves Deep that's different. But since Thomaslove92 based the images of Dwarves Deep, they are the letters shown in the images. — BadCatMan (talk) 07:31, June 14, 2013 (UTC)
Well I think we should stick with the old once for now, the new once don't really match the old once and I'm guessing we get an updated version with the Forgotten realms 5e Campaign guide. For all whom dont have the PHB5e here it is (All are alphabet letters except after the second row upside down "u" (z), after this point I have no idea what it is.

Hey, if you're out there User:Thomaslove92, it looks like the image for 99 is either five 10's too short, or you meant that to be 59 instead of 99. Could you correct that when you get the chance please? :) —Moviesign (talk) 19:40, November 6, 2016 (UTC)
Great spot! Thanks. I've fixed it :) -Thomas Love [talk] 02:56, November 7, 2016 (UTC)
Hehe, uh, unless I counted incorrectly, you now have ten 10's in 99. —Moviesign (talk) 13:51, November 7, 2016 (UTC)
