As I am stuck on all of the other contests I decided to give my brain some rest and try some primers. But the 10th section is still working on my brains.

I think I have decoded the bottom line, but I have trouble decoding the upper line (A's and B's). Is it unbroken morse? Or do I need a totally different approach? Binary, Baconian are also methods tried. What am I missing?

A bit of help would be appreciated Smile

TYIA and regards, Franca

I'm very impressed if you've managed to do that without the top line as well.

Hopefully you will see it isn't unbroken (in fact it is broken exactly as you would want). The longer strings should pin down the exact decoding. However, the plain text on its own may not make immediate sense...

Also, just in case you weren't aware, there are hints hidden in the HTML source for some of the puzzles in Puzzle Primer.

Thanx for the help Stretham. Although my 2nd decode was right I 'forgot' to add the first part.

And sneaky Wink that source info
