Well, if you just want the ASCII numbers for the letters: a 097 1100001 b 098 1100010 c 099 1100011 d 100 1100100 e 101 1100101 f 102 1100110 g 103 1100111 h 104 1101000 i 105 1101001 j 106 1101010 k 107 1101011 l 108 1101100 m 109 1101101 n 110 1101110 o 111 1101111 p 112 1110000 q 113 1110001 r 114 1110010 s 115 1110011 t 116 1110100 u 117 1110101 v 118 1110110 w 119 1110111 x 120 1111000 y 121 1111001 z 122 1111010 And upper case... A 065 1000001 B... Well, if you carry on, you'll just find you simply take 32 or 100000 away from each of the lower case numbers. Hope this helps! Jane Who knew her Pure Mathematics Degree would come in useful someday. ______________________ skazki@globalnet.co.uk ______________________
