The order is important in certain situations, such as when all the letters in the word are reversed except the first and last ;-)

I read this years ago, and I always used it as the reason why everyone can read pasted my damned typos!

I can read it...

It's wierd ain't it? I remember reading about this a few years back. I think I've even seen some posters that made use of it advertising something or other unrelated too.

I dont think he power of the human mind has much to do with it tbh. So many people use l33t speek these days anyone who has ever read an internet forum has seen just about every conceivable misspelling of every word in the dictionary.
The example drreagan uses above where every letter apart from the first and last is reversed is actually using an organised system. It is much harder to understand as l33t people would never use such a complex system, therefore we have never seem the words misspelt in this way.
