I work with a wildly dyslexic person, who often sends emails that don't only misplace letters in the same word, but often words in the same sentence.

Needless to say, I could read the post.

My word-fu is strong.

Either that, or the fact that a had a twinge of dyslexia myself when I was a kid means that I scramble stuff around all the time *anyway*... :)
