If each letter has a value (a=1, b=2, c=3 etc.) what words have a total letter value of exactly 100 when you add up all of the letters?
Are there any words that equal 100 if the letter values are swapped (z=1, y=2.....a=26)?

Travis's answers got me wondering whether or not any numbers exist where the total letter value is equal to the number.
At the risk of reopening the bucket of snakes regarding written numbers, the smallest one I found is: 251 (two hundred and fifty one)
If the word 'and' is excluded then I don't believe that there are any such numbers, at least for a=1...z=26.
