I didn't know which forum to post this in, since it doesn't specifically relate only to Spanish. But I post it for the delectation of those who understand Spanish and if anyone wants to translate it, I'd be interested to see the results. I don't know where it originated (I first saw something like it in a science magazine) but I found this version on Usenet:

"Sgeun un etsduio de una uivenrsdiad aermicacna, no ipmotra el odren en el que las ltears etsan ersciats, la uicna csoa ipormtnate es que la pmrirea y la utlima ltera esten ecsritas en la psiocion cocrrtea. El rsteo peuden estar ttaolmntee mal y aun pordas lerelo sin pobrleams. Etso es pquore no lemeos cada ltera por si msima snio la paalbra cmoo la cnooecmos. Pesornamelnte me preace icrneilbe..."

    I think there has been a thread on this Garry...(but I don't remember the title so I cannot give it to you.. :D )... anyway... that article is easy to read!!! I'd never have imagined that such a strange letters arrangement would be so easy to understand!!

    Curiously enough, I was able to read the text in Spanish considerably faster that I could read it in English!!!! I knew I was far from being bilingual, and yet... I'll have to make sure my boss doesn't learn any of this!! :D
