It was agreed upon that page numbers were irrelevant, but if someone was kid enough to post the original hebrew scriptures of these verses, apply atbash to it, and retranslate it into English (Where it can apply), there may be a clue.

By the way. My name is Sherlocke, but you may call me S.

Yahweh spoke to Moses and said... Numbers 5:5

Then bring the Levites before the tent of Meeting, and call together the whole community of Israel... Numbers 8:9

When the tribe of issachar had been listed by clans and families, the names of all the males 20 years and over, able

to give military service were recorded one by one. Numbers 1:28
To him I speak face to face openly, and not in riddles, and he sees the presence of Yahweh. Why then did you not

fear to speak, my servant, against Moses. Numbers 12:8

I got an email this morning from one of the new members to the community, jimeastham. I'll post it here for everyone:

I'm working on the solution to the text anamolies in the paperback editions of the DaVinci Code. I see that you started a community on Live Journal.
I posted a comment on Urban Scrawl, but I'm a blog-idiot and not sure of the best way to share my new information about this new puzzle.
First, everyone is off-track with the page numbers for each clue. The Page numbers are IRRELEVANT. It's the chapter numbers that matter. There are 2 paperback versions of the March 2006 printing: the Trade edition and the Mass Market edition. Almost all of the anamolies are in the same chapter in each edition, but NOT on the same page (except for one that is on the same page, in different chapters... another clue).
Also, I have found another set of clues that, so far, no one has found! See if you can find them (smile) They're at the beginning of chapters 15, 21, 60, 61, 73 and 83. Very hard to see, but obvious once you see it.

After exhausting the possibilities of the page numbers, I think he may be right in that they are irrelevant. Don't have the time to look at the chapter beginnings very thoroughly at the moment, but perhaps this will stir us up a bit and give us a push in the right direction.

The British High Court judgement in the copyright infringement case between The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail and The Da Vinci Code is itself rumored to encode a message:


Just an amusing little bit of fun.

In the paperback release of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, there are certain printer anomolies.

Originally thought to be typos, a growing population of readers now believes these anomolies to be a puzzle of Dan Brown's devising.

This community is meant to be a central hub for discussion and debate over what these anomolies may mean. A central hub on LiveJournal may work somewhat better than the existing board on SparkNotes or the IMDB board, both of which require registration. This community is set up to allow anonymous commenting, and is more organized than the commenting functions of Urban Scrawl or The Yahoo Answers threads.
