    Hi Leif,

    I am not synonymous with these number sequences. Tell me how Tony came to <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">8</span hide>!!!
    Regards,

    Re: Next number

    Well, I could have worded the original question:
    <hr>Looking carefully and noting down the number of characters in each of the following words:

    What is the next number in this sequence below:<hr>
    But that might have made it a touch too easy...
