Hi Lakeslee, Welcome to the forum.

Sorry lakelee, I answered your second post before I noticed this one.
Don't take this the wrong way but because this is a course you are doing I won't give you the answer to your question without you having to do a little work first http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/eek.gif
There is a section in the module that discusses this issue. Think about the changes that had taken place with encoding methods before the IBM PC came on the scene. Read this over and the answer should come to you. Post back if you have or haven't figured it out and we'll take it from there.

Good Luck http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif
