    OK, maybe this is OT, but this is interesting:

    I cdnuolt blveie taht I cluod aulacity uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. Aoccdrnig to a rschearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is that the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can stlli raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig, huh? Cool.

    So if you make a spelling mistake in a post, don't worry, be happy.

    Research also shows that we recognize words by their shape. This is why typing in all uppercase is difficult to read, as the words appear as rectanglar blocks without varying shapes.

    Right you are Duct - I suppose that's why proofreading is so damn tedious and difficult!
