VMs: John Dee tables a further thought

If as I mentioned previously the tables were 6 x 4 this does not mean that
it has to contain all the numbers from 1 to 24. it could have duplicates and
only include say 1 to 21. the words could be read from the tables letter by
letter and then substituted for the equivalent numbers. These 21 numbers
would then reference a glyphset with each glyph representing a particular
number. This way the same number would represent several different plaintext
letters. As the encoder would have no need to decipher the text it would not
matter. However it would completely foul up the statistical analysis.
