"One could have full use of all 26 letters if the cryptkeeper had elected to either blur all the words together, or insert a 27th character as a delimiter. If there was a delimiter, of course, then we'd have to ignore it when calculating the differences."
If mod 27 were used, the given message would have come out:
Of course the starting letter is arbitrary. Just to illustrate the point, if you start with Q, it comes out:
QJR SSVJNSSMEJBBRSKNO SSLTYMDB
with the blank just taking the place of the at sign in the ascii sequence--or non-computerwise, after Z and before A in the cycle of 27.
