I've been kind of explaining it as I go. Since I only had half hour increments of time to work on it, I thought I'd post what work I had already
done so that maybe somebody else could crack it. I'll spare you all the shuffling, counting and hairpulling I did before I got to the part where I
removed the "V's", "O's", "I's", and "D's".
The word "VOID" was spelled out in the cipher 3 times. I removed all the "voids". I then arranged the letters into blocks of "words" leaving
spaces where the removed letters had been.
The group of letters toward the end (AHEA) immediately stood out as the word "THAT" but, since substitution ciphers substitute one letter for
another, the letter "H" couldn't stand for itself so I kept coming up with false translations of the cipher.
It finally occured to me to go with my gut instinct. Once I had one word, the rest fell into place.
Example of letter spacing after V,O,I,D's removed:
RFZA JXNEFZX TLF XPQXNA ZLBXAHMGC AL JX AHXUX MA SLXZGA EWKETZ BXEG AHEA MA KMWW JX.
I originally also removed all the "X's" thinking they were word spacers but had to put them back in when the words didn't group as nicely as the
