    A Hot Tip: Code Breaking

    During the meeting this morning, my friend slid a wrinkled piece pf paper in my direction. It seems that his financial planner had called earlier with a hot tip that he was kind enough to share with just me. If you can decipher the tip, then you'll know it , too!

    Re: A Hot Tip: Code Breaking

    Okay, I'll supply a hint. The object is to break the code and reveal a secret message. The hint might just make this tooooo easy so try a little harder before you look...

    Hint: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Each pair of words represents a single letter of the hidden message.</font color=yellow></span hi>

    Hint 2: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>The first pair of words represent the letter:</font color=yellow></span hi> <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>S</font color=yellow></span hi>
