How to cheat | Comment 2 of 9 |

I found acquittal and mythology but then I got bored.

So I cut and pasted the first line into google. 

First hit.

Using the first column the relevant site is the sixth on the list.

Using six randomly selected terms {16, 13, 22, 21, 6, 20} it was the fourth.

The other sites Google returns (which have nothing to do with this puzzle) are all Adobe Acrobat and PostScript files.  It appears that words are parsed into groups of letters, but when you click on them you get a regular document that looks fine.

Anyone know why?
