Hi Jeo,

It's possible to miss words out of sentences when it's clear what they should be. It's called 'ellipsis'.

I hope that helps,

Hello,

I don't quite understand what you mean. Where do you want to download your poem from? Did you write it in a comment on our site?

Hello Maro,

You have only commented on this page, so if it isn't here, I don't think it's anywhere else on the site.

video is not working.

Hi there,
Just install the "flash player plug-in" in your Web-browser.

Hello,

Sorry to hear that. We know a small number of visitors are having problems with the videos on the site, but we don't know why. We are trying to fix it.

Can you tell us which web browser(s) you are using?
