Steve Herman, I plead guilty to a little hand-waving on your 1) but Harry takes care of the question nicely. 

As to your 2), you're correct.  My statement about (x+y) = 1 mod 16 is just wrong.  What I should have written is that (x+y) is odd because it factors the odd integer 16xy+1.

Harry, thanks for your explanatory post.
