The fourth part of Kryptos has 97 letters.  I recently did a series of experiments with some modified text searching for digraphic solutions.

The way I did this was by removing an “apparent” kryptos from the text.

Here’s K4:

Grid it out in a 9×10 field

Voila!

There’s certain types of transpositions that require the text be arranged as a grid.  For anyone curious as to the grid I’d been talking about, this is the one I used.
