text scramble effect?

If anybody has seen Bourne Ultimatum, National Treasure, Transformers, or has played call of duty 4 (or has watched any modern movie), when they display text, they make the random letters first appear, and then display the message. They do it to have a modern computer feel. Does anybody know how to recreate this effect or direct me to a tutorial?
If you guys don't understand what I am talking about, watch this Call of Duty 4 cutscene (Not a Spoiler for those who play the game)
Notice how the text seems to be "coded" in onto the screen. Does anybody know how to do this cool effect?

You could do it 'manually' using Flash. You'd have to create a new keyframe for each letter, but it would be tedious rather than difficult and would actually look quite cool. Export the finished text as a movie (probably quicktime) and then import it into iMovie or your preferred editor.
Hmm, might give that a go myself when i get time.
