Just reversed the cipher.
ZEBRA = 1_ _ _ 26
   and
(0x040) = sp  in  OCTAL

You know, a numeric cipher like this is much more effective when you don't just number the letters in order from A=1 to Z=26. Try mixing them up a little.

then whats the answer but pm me the answer

Ack. I don't parse Unicode directly, unfortunately (being an ignorant American :-). Let's see if Wikipedia can help me...Yes, yes it can :-)

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Unicode/Character_reference/0000-0FFF

Here we go... ĂėĤĐ@āĢą@ģđĕĠĔą

Well, I haven't any idea what that means. The diacriticals are pretty cool, though. Who knew you could put a cedilla onto 'G'!

Happy New Year


I freely admit, I can't figure it this year

Ah, you actually used a cipher, eh? My bad :-)
Urgh?!? That's fascinating. I copy-and-pasted directly from the displayed characters on the Wikibooks page I cited. The characters displayed properly while I was editing the comment, and even after I hit [Post], but now they're showing as non-displayable Unicode boxes. Oh, well. Unintelligible in any event.
