I tried extra spaces between the words, but they still appeared too close. So now they are separated by a / . - Delores--Lindsey, JUN 21, 2010

Well, "cryptoquote" is a made-up word, and so would have to be the Spanish equivalent. I propose: "criptocita".

I think that you had better tell us if the quote is in Spanish or English. - 0074b507, JUN 22, 2010
It is in Spanish and concerns one of our favorite people. - Delores--Lindsey, JUN 23, 2010
