The use of numbers 1-52 inclusive implies a deck of cards cipher, however the distribution is not even, glyphs 27-52 make up only about 1 in 4 characters, and their distribution is patchy. There are no 10s or16s in the lower group, but no 27,33,34,37,39,42,44,45,46,47,48,49,50.

The 5 commonest glyphs are 20 (x18); 24 (x14); 08 (x13); 12 (x11) and 28 (x10).

Hmmm... card deck cipher, never thought of that before. Neat idea!

*Giggles* Have luck cracking it! You'll need it. :-D

A card deck crypto-system is a key element of
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptonomicon

The system is called Pontifex in the book, but Solitaire in RL.

BTW, it is an awesome book.
