Master Illusion Text: Easter Egg or Gibberish

Greetings friends, I found something odd as I perused the Master Illusion Text from Skyrim. The Librarian provided the translation (provided below) which appeared to be, just as they commented, ‘gibberish in a fancy font’. However, as I looked it appeared not just random lettering. I don’t consider myself a master level typist or a cryptographer by any stretch of the imagination, but the letter grouping (as written on a keyboard) appear to be deliberate, not just the random: a;sldkfjgh.

So I invite you, oh wonderers of the Imperial Library, to give the Master Illusion Text one more glance. Should you not make the same observations (albeit the blurry ones I have made), I will concede perhaps it was the Alto wine I consumed heavily that evening and not some deeper conspiracy.
