    of course, Steve. I considered making it more cryptic but I didn't want to deter too many from making an attempt. Best laid plans............

    How is this for more cryptic:
    IF JACK AND JILL = CCLXXI AND
    IF JOHN AND JUNE=CCCXLI THEN
    TARZAN AND JANE = ?

    Yes Steve! It certainly is cryptic. Still working on it.

    Re: Tarzan and Jane

    Your puzzle's solution was <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Transform the letters (A=1, ...Z=26), Add the transformed letters, then convert the sum to Roman Numerals</font color=yellow></span hi>

    Some hints to my puzzle's workings is <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow> 2 additional transformations</font color=yellow></span hi>
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Transform the letters (Hint it is NOT: A=1, ...Z=26, but some other pattern)</font color=yellow></span hi>
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Add the transformed letters </font color=yellow></span hi>
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>transform the sum</font color=yellow></span hi>
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow> finally convert this "transformed sum" to Roman Numerals</font color=yellow></span hi>

    If you need additional hints, let me know

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>CDLXXXI</font color=yellow></span hi> . I needed the clue despite getting close on a number of occasions. Keep'em coming.
