Jim has got the right idea. You can't keep
Voynich MS Vets down either. Let's take up

at solving ciphers is not quite up to the
Bletchley standard, but our two Jims at least

to me (r_zandbergen@xxxxxxxxx) his or her own ideas
what the abbreviation could stand for and I
will summarise to the list befo! re the end of
Better not to clog the list with endless
suggestions including quotes of all previous
suggestions..... (so don't just "Reply" to this

Looking forward to the fruit of your imagination,
