I think some of the frequencies of letters on the BOSS frequency analysis thing might be wrong, because letters like V and Z are 10x lower than what wikipedia says they should from what I’ve seen. Wikipedia has 0.98 for V and BOSS has roughly 0.098, and the same for some other letters. We spent ages assuming V and X must be padding characters due to the low percentages shown on the BOSS tool, when it is actually reasonable they could occur without being added.
[I don’t think the BOSS Frequency counter is wrong, but if you email me screenshots then I can take a look, Harry]
