Interesting challenge. I'll be interested in the comments from the typophiles here.

I got 89%, caused by bombing out badly on the first while learning how to do it.

I ended up with a 94% average, getting 100% on all but two. I didn't get the first word quite right (learning curve, like you) plus one other where I totally disagreed with their solution and thought mine was better.

On the first one I had no idea how precise they wanted me to be but after that I knew what they wanted. I'm still somewhat peeved about the word I believe they kerned incorrectly. LOL!
