    Avoid the hints unless you must...

    Hint: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>elpruP = 4 - roloc rehtonA</font color=yellow></span hi>

    Re: Pick a color...

    Well, that's not what I'm thinking, but I'd be interested in your explanation... You could very well be correct "on your terms".

    Another hint: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>You'll have to think out of the box a little bit. Apply the colors to something real, rather than trying to unravel the construction of the colors. If you don't get this immediately, chances are I've just added confusion!</font color=yellow></span hi> <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    This is driving me mad as usual, your hints have done nothing more than to totally confused. Is there relevance to why you have written it backwards?

    Jerry, you got it! And no, there was no relevance to the backwards hints, it just my way of making someone work for it! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    That's a little unfair as over here pool balls are generally 7 red, 7 yellow and 1 black with no numbers. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Pick a color...

    As I'm familar with Snooker, I see 15 reds, a yellow, a green, a brown, a blue, a pink, a black, and the cue (white) ball.

    Ah... gotta love that English Heritage <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>.

    If it's a true English heritage, you'd also be humming:
    "Pot the reds and screw back,
    for the yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and black.
    Snooker loopy, nuts are we...."
    a la Chas 'n' Dave. (confused yet?)

    Haven't heard that one before... I'm going to need to place a call to my great-aunt in Slough now!
