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.

I've spent an inordinate amount of time attempting to decrypt this but with no success. Purchance you would be willing to proffer a smidgeon of a clue, Steve?

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
