The damage: Fiona McClymont finds out how much it costs to disappear

Ever entertained the thought of just quietly disappearing one day? To hell with the family, sod the job, stuff the bills, and au revoir to this life's mistakes. Sounds appealing? Well, why not just jettison- off your old existence and reinvent yourself, emerging Reggie Perrin-like into ... whatever takes your fancy. According to the people at Info-Assist - whose book Get Lost! instructs you how to do just that - the sooner you start planning, the better. They advise obtaining the necessary documents for your new life (birth certificate, passport, etc) and stashing them away in a safe place now, just waiting for the day when it all becomes too much. Here's the what it will cost you to achieve a new identity for the new millennium. (Needless to say, some of the following is not entirely legal.)

Letter: Roman order

Sir; Robert Graves's tree alphabet (letter, 7 January) has an unusual order. Our alphabet, and the order of its letters, is basically the Latin one, which the Romans inherited from the Greeks via the Etruscans.

Letter: Sir Elton talks a good game

Sir: How refreshing it was to read the comments by Sir Elton John which were reported in Glenn Moore's article (23 December). With further opportunities, I feel he could have a beneficial influence on the game.
