Sorry, monty is right about there being a mistake. Still, I don't know if it would allow you to solve without filling in all the boxes. It looks like whoever entered it accidentally created boxes above punctuation marks. Bummer that placing the correct dashes didn't work.

Did you try 2 periods w/o a space between them?
ie: there are signs..

Oh wow, I didn't even catch that, thanks!

I suggested 2 dots because of the number 2 under the box.

Question Wild Guess

The ellipses would make logical sense of the puzzle, but I don't think you can enter more than one character per box. The 2 just means that the same mystery shows up twice. Perhaps a semicolon? (Although I believe Puffer has already tried that.)

Ok so I was able to go back to that cryptogram using the url from my screenshot.

I fixed the typo and..IT ACCEPTED IT.

So, did that count on your percentages as solving it the first time as a retry, or as a new puzzle? And I'm very happy that it's solvable.
