Not quite. I imagine the underlying text is a number of lines,
possibly of different lengths, each line constructed at the whim
of the author, but none-the-less trying to look like a meaningful
sentence or phrase.
(one line might be "aiin.shedy.qokeedy.qotedy.qo" for example)
The "grille" would have a single rectangular window 1 char high
and perhaps 10 to 16 chars wide (maybe there are a number of
different grilles). I would expect that the grille is moved
randomly about the page, and I believe it is not constrained to
be wholly within the text but is allowed to overlap the edges.
