COMMENTS

Of course there cannot be any number that is expressed in any of the usual ways without w, o, r, t or h, between eleven and a googol. "Twelve and the teens and ties, factorials" all contains at least one "t". Powers all contain "tothe". "Score" or "dozen" or "gross" contain at least an "o". "Hundred" and "thousand" contain at least an "h" and "illion" contains an "o". Reading digitbydigit would lead to the duller sequence: 5, 6, 7, 9, 55, 56, 57, 59 and exclude that very worthless number, fiveelevens.  Michael Joseph Halm, May 05 2006
