    Default Inconsistencies of Character

    All right, maybe you guys can help me figure out if I am way stretching on these or not, but here it is:

    Pel clearly knows how to make both the lower and uppercase letters I and i... but it's driving me nuts that sometimes he uses lowercase "i"s even in a word where he uses all uppercase letters...like on the Cadillac Mountain page with the signs- and also on the Lobsterman page...any thoughts on what's up with that?

    The second, and more open for tricks of the eyes, is on the Harley Quinn page, 30, if you look at the bottom of the map, there's the degrees for the island- 68...but does anyone think that the 6 looks more like a key??? He paints a normal looking 6 in other places of the book...hmm...any significance to 6 that others can think of? or do people see that the 6 is just a 6?

    Over the years, I know there have been a lot of questions about the "i's". I do a lot of printing and until people began questioning it, I had not noticed the lower case "i's", maybe because when I was learning to write, I remember out teachers telling us to use the lowercase i's as they would look like lowercase L's (l) if we capitalized them. Maybe it was a thing we were taught back then. I had not noticed that in years, because it is the way I print when I am using all upper case, as well.

    As far as the 6 goes, I think it is 68 degrees. There seems to be a lot of confirmation of that throughout.
    Not all who wander are lost.

    Wow, I never thought of it like that, but you are right. Upper case I's can be confused with lower case l's, so maybe it's simply a way to make things a little clearer, and not some mysterious code. And I agree that the 6 is a 6 and not a key. A fellow treasure hunter and I had looked at what we call the "F-O" keys, though - the skeleton keys. The one next to the treasure chest could be F-O (key) X + C = F-O-X+C, or Foxy.
