Five hundred begins it, five hundred ends it,
Five in the middle is seen;
First of all letters, the first of all figures,
Take up their stations between.
Join all together, and then you will bring
Before you the name of an eminent king.

this was a great teaser. oh and a comment for bludreama when you actually submit a teaser, or can take the time to think of one you might actually find that it is not as easy and as boring as you think. But then again what would you know you just got your computer and are amazed that you know how to turn the thing on, oh and another thing please stop looking for the any key.
