Hi hippo

Unfortunately, this approach violates the spec: the second 'x' might qualify for a "." ("any sign"), and might not indicate the middle of the string.

So long, Rata

    If that's really the case (and you are probably right) then maybe change the order: find the first and last occurrence of 'x', calculate where the middle one should be and look there?

    However, the spec is a little woolly and the whole thing is still shouting "XY!" at me.
