In the telephony world 0 is a ten not a null, so wouldn't that be a
pretty high number?

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I think that all depends; if you are
dial pulsing the number it is a 'ten'. Exactly how it is translated
if being 'tone dialed' is not known to me. Is it still considered a
'ten'. In that case, are the '*' and '#' keys considered eleven and
twelve when dialed? PAT]
