see section 2.3 from the sci.crypt FAQ

http://groups.google.com/groups?q=author:crypt-comments%40math.ncsu.edu&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&selm=cryptography-faq/part02_1048071134%40rtfm.mit.edu&rnum=9

"If you have come up with an encryption scheme, providing some
  ciphertext from it is not adequate. Nobody has ever been impressed by  random gibberish."

I found 2 different ways that work, should I just PM you in the interest of not spoiling it for everyone else?

I only found one way.  Solved this by sight, using MS-DOS EDIT to replace the characters with the obvious Letter or symbol.  Once the correct letters start to appear it became easier to get the rest, and they all fell into place.  Then I saved it as a BAS and ran the encrypted text through it to decrypt it which shows your original code that match what I came up with.

I PM'ed it to you.
