comment How do ciphers change plaintext into numeric digits for computing?
@CodesInChaos: Thanks! I didn't know. I will research this and update my answer or delete the answer.

@B-Con: Ahh, I see. So 2^(4.7) = 26. How would one actually do this? I am not sure that I understand.

comment Can I make a cipher (ex: Vigenère) harder to break?
@CodesInChaos: Thanks for the comment. I don't want to use this for anything serious, I am just learning. I would like to understand how one might combine the Vigenere with something simple. Something that would be easy to understand and to implement. What do you mean by the 4.7 bit one?
