Well, it said 'sign' in the newspaper article, but of course Nigel is right, in those days the King would have set his seal upon the document. It was only a joke. I think pedantry can be a real dampener on a bit of fun, if taken to excess. However, it's true that one should phrase exam questions very carefully, in fairness to the candidates.

For what my feeble input may be worth, I find Steve's and Michael's posts to be interesting and also funny. I need a bit of a laugh, as I'm not too well today. It's Mudcat and Old Speckled Hen that are keeping me going at the moment!
