Can you spell?

i cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!

If enough people ask for a translation, I'll write one but I don't think you'll need it. I've heard people talking about this post but hadn't seen it until Heather posted it at MySpace. It made me smile and think of Instant Messaging. :-) Hi Gerliadne!

Okay...I _can_ read the post, but it takes a lot longer when the letters are out of order. Have they studied the reasons for TAHT??

And I'm happy to know that I don't have to go back & correct my name every time I type it wrong...which is often, given the number of letters involved! 8^)

And what's with the handicapped symbol next to the word verification block??
