Many thanks to Riley for this puzzle format.

(Pardon the formatting, still new to the spoiler tags...)

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks M Oehm....still not sure why your '>!' hid the text and my earlier ones didn't, but hopefully I can figure it out before next time... $\endgroup$ Apr 10, 2018 at 17:28

    $\begingroup$ Spoiler markup is somewhat tricky. The >! must form one huge block and they cannot be followed by another spolier block. You cannot format paragraphs with blank lines in between, but you can introduce explicit line breaks with two or more spaces at the end of a line or with the <br /> tag. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @MOehm - is there a meta question about formatting spoiler tags... if not maybe would be helpful... $\endgroup$
