<br />Let me know when you figure it out. <br /><br /><br />[/quote]<br /><br />OK, I have discovered that if roman numerals have an 'upper half frame' above them it means multiply the number by 100,000. And that the symbol for 10,000 is an M with 5 legs instead of 3, which can be typed as '((I))'. (However, the ((I)) is archaic, and I'm not sure if you can use both symbols at the same time).<br /><br />(I can't work out how to put an overbar on, so I'll use an underline - turn your monitor upside down to see it properly
)<br /><br />So,<br /><br />
| ((I))((I))MMMMMDCLI | ((I))((I))MXXIIII<br /><br /> is (2x10,000+5x1000+500+100+50+1)x100,000 + (2x10,000+1,000+20+4) = 25,651x100,000 + 21,024 = 2,565,121,024!<br />
