A picture is worth a thousand words...so this chart is probably--er, 500 or so? Gives four different ways of representing the letter 'A', for example. Decimal, hex, octal, and HTML.

Though, if you type in each of the four ways of representing the letter A and pressing encrypt none equals a, get my drift?

Because those are just different ways of representing a letter, not an actual encryption.
Think about how what you input changes.

If it's not a encryption what's that got to do with the missions given chars?

Because that is how letters are represented in the encryption algorithm.
^ That should be more than enough to solve the mission easily.

Oh, but I did solve my mission. I'm just stating that the ASCIItable didn't helped me...at all!

Read the rest of the post on this topic. It's more than enough.

If it had been more than alphanumeric characters, the ascii table would have helped.

you have to use trial and error in order to figure out how the encryption algorithm functions in order to get the pattern to find the correct password
