I would LOVE to be a "real" cryptanalyst! And, huh--I tried a bunch of different fonts; with a LOT of imagination, I saw what looked possibly like a 9, a y, and a treble clef. (!) One of them turned it into Greek--this IS English, correct? Lastly--you did answer what I asked...and it was what I was hoping NOT to hear. Will have to change my strategy! (I suspected it anyway: there were too many things that were just too improbable.)
