RE: cardboard key

Hi Nick,
I first tried to do this algorithmically, but found it was easier to do it
visually- the white area between the "G"s popped out clearly. I made a table
of all x,y Positions of any Gallow letter, but didn't find an algorithm,
which would find this sort of information (like distance to next "G" in
row,column). But looking at the Gallow diagram, you see how dense the
distribution of Gallows really is more than 11% of the pages.
