Text Replacement

I'm a fan of this web comic called Homestuck and from that I what to be able to role play with my friends. MSPARP is great but I'd like to be able to us automatic letter replacement with Skype. I was wondering if there was a way for me to change the keyboard in a way that, for example, B and b would be replaced with 6 and o and O would be replaced with 9, so if I typed Bread oven baking bones it would instead print out: 6read 9ven 6aking 69nes. I have already tried Apple's text replacement, and it only works with things separated. It would be nice if a daemon could be made with a tab in the menu to change it. I was thinking about maybe making it a language and being able to select it in the menu bar as well if that's possible. Thanks for all the help you can contribute!

Haha I'm not sure if you're going to get much love for trying to create a l33t sp34k keyboard layout.

That said, when I ran a hackintosh laptop I had to inverse the ~ & ` characters (for whatever reason that key was a problem) so I used a program called Ukelele to create a custom keyboard map for my laptop.
