Nick pose la question : For numbers in bases larger than ten, what are the digits by mathematicians' conventions?
I assume the first 10 are always 0-9. I know two computer science conventions (for hexadecimal (A-F case-insensitively) and for base 85 (case-sensitivity plus 23 other characters)) and as a school student I learned that base 12 uses either T and E (which confused me when I thought they stood for Eleven and Twelve) or A and B, the latter as capitals only. Clearly, these conventions are in conflict.
