why would AgF be more ionic than Be(Cl)2?

Fluorine is more electronegative than chlorine. Fluorine is also the most electronegative element. Therefore we can assume AgF is more ionic even though Ag is closer to the right of the table than Be (though Be is very high up).

This is very helpful -- and I think it gets confusing especially if you aren't looking directly at the #'s .... with that said I think the rule of thumb that Chem_Mod made, is great.
