I like the "numbers" montage exactly as is, albym, so no changes necessary! I look forward to the amended collages but take your time. No hurry...

Today I have finished putting all the glossary terms into bold face, so that they stand out from the description. I had wanted to do this for some time but was concerned about eating up too many characters, as bold face adds 5 additional characters for every term highlighted! Hope posters will agree that this improves reading ease and that they are enjoying all the marvellous, new illustrations.

It has been fun working with albym on this project!

Left to right, top to bottom: 24 horas logo; Map of west Algarve (background)with 4km and 25km radii from Luz ; Reward poster; Express Group award; Home with tapas in the back garden; 999 + 1 = 1,000; 5A spawning 3A; Watch with time on its face as well as its hands; Wine bottle count; American viewers; E-mails; 100% and 103% Percentages; House values; Pound pill for the plague or paying the laundry bill?

I think you have captured the numbers exceedingly well. The watch with time on its face, in particular, is very clever, albym. A tricky one to do, but successful, all the same!

The ILLUSTRATED GLOSSARY... now occupies 48 pages of a Word document.

Today's correction:

Monteiro, Fernando Jos├® Pinto = Portugal's Attorney General

instead of Monteiro, Henrique Pinto. Confusing, as the Guardian also has the Attorney General down as Henrique Pinto Monteiro, while many newspapers have the name down as Pinto Monteiro only, with no forenames!

Would you give me the revised photobucket URLs? It looks as though the montages are not updating themselves through the usual channels. I am starting to wonder if there has been been a slight variation in the formatting of the URL. Would you mind taking a look?

Many thanks, albym.

Many thanks, redsquare!
