Solution: (Hide)
I'm onto something; it's hard to see,
but it has to do with [dear ol' me]...

While it may look like there is nothing in the body of the problem, there is actually a text-entry box (like you would see in an online form). Of course, the fact that the border has been removed and the background made transparent may make it a little harder to find ...

The box is centered (horizontally) and lives just beneath the dark bar containing the problem title. If you move the mouse over it, you will probably see (depending on your browser) the cursor change from the standard arrow pointer to a text-selection tool. If you are still having trouble, try highlighting (in IE and Netscape) the problem body.

Once you have realized that there is a text input box there, what do you do next? There isn't really much to try and 'solve,' so how about the problem title: 'XX.' Once you do that, hit 'tab' (or click somewhere else on the screen) to move input focus away from the text box. If you have done it correctly, you will see a pop-up box with the following text:

Good work, you found it!
Now, for your answer, type the following exactly:

"I'm onto something; it's hard to see,
but it has to do with ________..."

Where you fill in the blank with any word that starts with the same letter as your display name and that rhymes with "see."

Think you got it? Go to it! You have to click OK before you can submit an answer, but don't worry .. the text you need has been copied to the clipboard for you (just change the blank to some other word). Remember, don't give away anything else in your answer!
=)
So, for your answer (in the comments), you should have done just that, replacing the ____ with an appropriate word (or phrase).

Just for kicks, here's the same box, but not hidden:


The box and pop-up should work correctly in all W3C-compliant browsers (IE, Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox, Opera). Some pop-up disabling software may also potentially affect the functionality.
