Red, 'by' is shorter than 'the' ? There are lots of 3 letter words as well as 'the'.

Well I'm a bit late finding this one... but I agree with Red.

It is a real word and although I like Red's thinking it's not the answer I was looking for.

Somebody has posted the right answer although I don't think they realise it.
