The principle of encryption is to associate to a number, a letter or group of letters comprising as many distinct lines/bars necessary for their writing/symbol.
Example: The number 3 can be linked to A or F because these letters are composed of 3 lines/bars
Example: F is the 6th letter of the alphabet, or 6 which can be encrypted with AA
The count of bars is rather natural, but it is not universal, it works easily with letters with bars, but less well with curved letters.
Example: S is composed of a single curved line so it is associated with 1 (but some could count up to 3 lines for this letter)
