in thread Difference between encoding and encryption?

No worries -- I was just giving the definition several crypto-books will say; they claim both words as methods of hiding messages. Colliquially (or perhaps, outside of that community at least), encoding means translating, whereas encrypting means obscuring. The former for ease of communication, the latter to secure communication.
