Codes for Kids

Here is a simple code that takes a message and prints it out backwards. It decodes the message in exactly the same manner.

Type a message in the "Text to code/decode" box below and click on the "Code" button. Your message will be encrypted (printed backwards) and placed into the "Result" box. If you want to decode a message, place a coded message in the "Text to code/decode" box and click on the "Decode" button. Tip: you can cut and past from the "Results" box to the "Code/Decode" box. Comments: this code can handle numbers just fine, unlike the simple numeric substitution code. Warning: don't mix upper and lower case letters in your message--use only one or the other so you don't give anyone any easy clues about how to decode your message. For the same reason, don't use punctuation either.
