Thank you both for your replies, but no. The order is specified on both the challenge page and the info page as "blue,green,red,yellow,white". The digest idea is not a bad one, except there are too many characters, and the solution is supposed to be a comma separated list of values. Any other thoughts, folks?

Mojo: Tried input with no commas a few times, but to no avail. The spec does say it's comma separated...
Defience: I'm parsing the XML using JAVA's SAX engine, then displaying using the applet libraries (after the appropriate translation). I just type the result in by hand once it's displayed on the screen, usually with about 20-30 seconds to spare. It just tells me the answer is wrong. You can see the results look fine, but it never gets accepted. I verified the output of my program by reading the XML and comparing the number of blue elements, for example, and it all looks right.
I can PM code to a site dev if desired, if there's a way to compare to the back end. Otherwise I can't think of a simple fix.
