ROT13 is a simple cipher used to obscure geocache hints. Geocachers who want the hint can decrypt it fairly easily by hand, but it is more difficult for others to "accidently" read the hint (and spoil their fun).

Here is the key for ROT13 encryption/decryption:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M
N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

To encrypt or decrypt a letter, just find it in the key and select the letter above or below it.
