Thread Name: Palindromes
Subject: RE: Palindromes
A palindrome is a word or phrase where the letter sequence reads the same from either end. Or, to put it another way, when the sides are reversed it remains the same. Thus:
"Able was I, ere I saw Elba" sides reversed is "Able was I, ere I saw Elba"
Ia a palindrome almost 3 times the size of the original!
