Mirror of Erised

Umpteen-thousandth time I've read Harry Potter book 1, and just now noticed something. Sure, I knew the Erised in "mirror of Erised" was really "Desire" done backwards. But I just now noticed this, about the inscription:

Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi. | ishow no tyo urfac ebu tyo urhe arts desire => I show not your face but your heart's desire.

Damn, you'd think someone as obsessed with codes and secret messages as I am would have noticed something as "cryptography 101" as that a few dozen reads ago. But I guess I just assumed it was Latin or something. I only noticed it this time because the "stra" caught my eye, since my given name backwards is Natsirt Stra. (Well, technically it would be strA natsirT, but whatever.)
