Re(14): Listener No 4350 - Revelation of John by Elfman

But there was an easy option. The message was USE HIGHLIGHTED CELLS ON OTHER CLUES. But which cells to highlight? Not much use. So, instead, why not first take a look at the characters in the clues? As presented the characters in the clues look a jambled mess. But we'd already been using nth characters, a good hint to what might be required, so one needed to align the clues neatly (I used little grids) to look for some pattern in the characters. Voila, ROCKET MAN staring at you in the 10th to first columns. Not difficult thereafter to work out what one needed to highlight. There had been no need for any prolonged grid-staring.
