What makes you think that 11 or 88 read upside down would cause misinterpretation? They would still appear as 11 and 88 respectively. It was stated in the question '**the code, handwritten in a slip** can however create misinterpretation when read upside down - for example, the code 91 may appear as 16'. Which means 1 is written as |. And
