More intrigue wink !!??!!

First question that came to mind...what 'era' of English development ??

As previously demonstrated (post #219281 - 10/10/07), the English of Leonardo's day (with or without 'initiation' into its usage) was nothing like that of today. Any deployment of it even by an 'initiated' Leonardo would have relfected the language then, not the language of later development or today's.

...and Grrr82CU smile
