Many left handed people (my son being one of them) write in mirror writing
from the very start. This is a common phenomenon and once left-handedness
was studied (instead of prevented) it was thought that Leonardo's mirror
writing was simply easier for him rather than being code: being
illegitimate, he was not allowed to go to school (which probably enabled him
to stay left handed!)

For those who like fonts, P22 carries a "davinci" font which contains both
forwards and backwards letters.
