The Isle of Wight is the largest island in the English Channel.

Agree. Isle of Wight is the largest island in the English Channel and Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands group.

How about changing the clue instead? “Second largest island in the English channel” or “Largest of the Channel Islands [that's the name of Jersey's archipelago which the Isle of Wight isn't part of]” come to mind. It's a much more elegant solution because many sources name the Solent as a part of the Channel.

Java is a tea, not a coffee.

I thought it was a programming language. :) Americans have their "cup of java" in the morning. We have a Java Dave's coffeeshop in our town. I think it originally referred to a specific coffee from the island of Java, but now in the US it is just slang for any coffee.

I have never heard of tea being referred to as Java. In the US, Java, apart from being a programming language as ander217 stated, refers to coffee. At least it always has in my experience.

The logo for Java, the programming language, is also a coffee cup

"Jodphur" seems to be at least an acceptable, and maybe more standard, spelling. (BTW, thanks for another nice quiz.)

Wikipedia doesn't mention that spelling, so I'm not sure if it is accurate, but it will work now.

p.s. When in doubt just spell it without the H. We almost never require extraneous H's.
