What appears to be code can occur by chance.

A simple example from the business world: Lee Iacocca's family name 
decoded is "I Am Chairman of Chrysler Corporation of America."

Lurking for 400 years until David Basch, and no one else, discerned it.

sonnets. Has anyone examined Mr TT's other dedications in search of ELS 
codes?
