Default Need help decrypting a font


Hello guys,
I'm filling a questionnaire, the last question is definitively a test, I can't figure out how to read it! Any help?

Thanks in advance

well, it says: How many cadbury's creme eggs could you eat in 15 minutes?
are you sure it isn't a puzzle instead of a questionnaire?
I opened the .doc in WordPad (which interpreted the font as Symbol), changed the font to a text font, and read it from right to left.

Hello,
many thanks! Weirdly I tried to do the exact same thing without result, all I saw, even in wordpad and notepad were squares. Thank you very much. It is indeed a questionnaire, that is the last question, it's purposely a joke

I was using the Windows XP version of Wordpad on a computer which has never had Word installed on it, and I think for this or some other reason the webdings font was not present, and Symbol was substituted

I was wrong about the webdings font ... actually it is present on my XP machine and available in both WordPad and NotePad

You can try this ... open it in Word, copy and paste into WordPad, recopy in WordPad and paste into NotePad
