[uaskrdtz] Mapping letters to numbers in ASCII

A way to map letters to numerals, based on the ASCII table printed 32-wide, is 0 .. 9 = P .. Y. This is a bit surprising; one might have expected the digits to line up with the beginning of the alphabet.  The digit block does line up with a multiple of 16.

It suggests adding Z for base 11.
