    Re: Lost Consonants 2

    Nice puzzle Rob. I have gone through the list and only worked out 2 answers.

    1/ <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Angstrom</span hide>
    4/ <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Jockstrap</span hide>

    I hope none of the answers have an X in the middle <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Lost Consonants 2

    I can't get the spaces to show properly! It looks OK when I try to edit but after editing the spaces disappear. Or is that that the changes are still somewhere in hyperspace and will eventually appear?

    <pre>If you want spaces of varying lengths you can embed it in <!t>[pre]<!/t> - <!t>[/pre]<!/t> tags </pre>


    For no particular reason lets add an image to this post.

    Re: Lost Consonants 2

    Correct.
    The image in the previous post looks a bit dodgy, although my appearance has improved considerably.

    Re: Lost Consonants 2

    Perhaps 10# is not so common. I'll give you a clue:
    It begins with B and ends with G.
