    While I was working my way through the puzzle for the first time, Ricky and Hans got two of the answers I found (14 & 17). <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15> So I'm afraid I only have one for now.

    1. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>rift - flirt</font color=yellow></span hi>
