    can you read this?

    In The Times today I read this article. I wonder if it causes a probelm for foriegn readers of English?
    'I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid. Aoccdrnig to rseearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltter be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcusease the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh? and I awlyas thought slpeling was ipmorantt.'

    Can you do the same with Russian?

    There is also a typographic study that shows that the top half of letters is more important than the lower half. If you take a line of text and cut it in half horizontally at the level where the bars of lowercase x cross, you will see that you can read the text when you view the top half but not the bottom, which is mostly full of vertical lines.

    I remember hearing something about that, but it's still cool. That's a trip. I wonder if dyslexic people see the word written correctly...?
