Default Did anyone crack the code??

Hey I just started reading the Da Vinci Code today, lol. I'm going to read the book before I watch the movie when I noticed something on the cover of the book. There were some weird letters on the front that looked like gibberish. However at a second glance, something came to me. Leonardo Da Vinci was very paranoid about his work so he did weird things, leave messages in things, etc. I remembered in school that he learned how to write backwards, and that was one of his secret languages, so I tried putting the cover to a mirror and this is what I got. Lemme kno if anyone else noticed this..

" Praised, will reveal the truth to thee and helps to keep her seatter's family whole."

I am unsure if I got that last part right, but fill free to give your comments about this.

Lol, I really like Dan Brown's books, his novels are just cool, they don't let you get away, once you begin, you don't wanna stop. When they began with the movie thing I asked a friend for the book, and read it in two days ... That book is just awesome.

About Da Vinci, that guy was nuts, he was always inventing new things, he was like paranoid and stuff :P.

Yeah, and he like never finished any of his designs.
I keep wondering, if he would have taken the time to finish one design and then move to the next one how different would this world be right now?

Well at the time, the Church was freaking crazy. They could just lock you up if the stuff you were putting out didn't agree with their ideas. Like Copernicus said the solar system revolved around the sun, but the church said it revolved around the earth. I say he had some reason behind his paranoia.
