    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">I fear that some of these puzzles, in particular 4 and 5, depend on what kind of keyboard you have - many European countries have their own layout.</span hide>

    Don't you want to hide that last remark (use <!t>[hide]<!/t> and <!t>[/hide]<!/t> tags)? It gives away too much!

    Quite true Hans. I should learn to jump the boundaries of my small world and expand my horizons globally!

    I think they are actually 'solvable' on any keyboard - but you need to allow answers from all nationalities...

    Correct (I assume as my K/B speaks english) if you follow the pattern on your keyboard! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    I agree. As I said to Hans, I was in my own little world when i set up these. I should broaden my horizons just a little to include the whole world!!!

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Timbo on 16-Nov-04 09:39. just cleaning up my hide tag)</P>On my keyboard (US keyboard) at work the answers are:

    #4<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">2 + 5 = 7 0r &</span hide>
    #5<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">150 - 82 = 68 or ^*</span hide>

    On my keyboard at home (UK keyboard) it wouldn't make any sense because the @ symbol is where the " (US keyboard) symbol is.
