So off to Wikipedia (what better place to be at 2.36am PST) and I found-A lipogram (from Attic lipagrammatos, "missing symbol") is a kind of writing with constraints or wordplay consisting of writing paragraphs or books in which a particular symbol or group of symbols is missing — usually a common non-consonant, most commonly (in a South British lingo familiar to Milton) that symbol which is fifth in standard lists of Latin's script glyphs. And guess which letter is not present in the above paragraph?
Now, that is brilliant writing!
Thanks for the information, Froggy. I wondered how that could be done, and now I know! Yes, it is, Aled.
