I will indeed search around a little more to see if I can make edits elsewhere with greater ease and less craziness.

However, I do not see "Are yo__u a hunter?" and "Thank...v.y.uch..!" as likely elements of the MTE Table. The section I am working with starts around 001D-F600; can you take a look at it?

BTW, I find it interesting that the switching of "t" and "e" didn't switch every occurrence of those letters, as evidenced in the words "someehing" and "etlescope" that come up. This seems connected to the MTE, as "me" and "le" and "e (spacing information)" are all likely MTE entries, so they wouldn't be altered by the MTE shift.
