How does your code handle the case where the plain text is lower case and the key is upper case, or the opposite?

  • oh, I didn't realize that I was supposed to consider the capitalization of the key! Although this was helpful I'm still stuck in implementing the if loop for the key upper/lower case: – Jana B.W. Aug 7 '16 at 18:57
