Baconian Cipher

    Decoding Procedure

    The message is 25 letters, of which letters number 5, 14, 17, 18, 20, 22 and 23 are bold.

    Write them as A for not bold and B for bold letters, in groups of 5:
    1) AAAAB   2) AAAAA   3) AAABA   4) ABBAB   5) ABBAA

    Your decoded message is: BACON

    SECOND VERSION (using a unique combination for each letter):
