      Description

      In 1.13-pre6, changes were made to the fonts in Minecraft which affected obfuscated text.

      The bug

      Since 1.13-pre6, obfuscated text now uses a severely limited character set (looks like just the ASCII character set) whereas it previously used a rich character set of accents, letters, symbols, and other peculiar characters.

      I have uploaded a video which shows the effect in 1.13-pre5 and 1.13-pre7. The video is at 25% normal speed but you can also view it frame-by-frame or test yourself.

      How to reproduce:

      On either version of Minecraft, enter:

      /tellraw @a {"text":"abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz1234567890","obfuscated":true}
      

      Note

      This bug may also relate to MC-132664, which covers obfuscated text not randomizing.
