What you suggest isn't so much encryption as it is a substitution cypher.  The
following is more of an *encryption*:

Function Crypt(S : String) : String;
(* xor can be used to *toggle* values.  In this Case it is toggling  *)
(* Character of the String based on its postion in the String.  This *)
(* ensures that the mask is always known For the pupose of decoding. *)
    i : Byte;
    For i := 1 to Length(S) Do
      S[i] := Char(ord(S[i]) xor i);
    Crypt := S;

  TestS : String;
  TestMask : Byte;

  TestS := 'This is a test 1234567890 !@$%';
  Write('original: ');

  TestS := Crypt(TestS);
  Write('Encrypt : ');

  TestS := Crypt(TestS);
  Write('Decrypt : ');

{Please note that this was a quickie and not fully tested and thereFore
cannot be guaranteed to be perfect.    But it ought to give you a
slightly different perspective and help you see alternate approaches to
the problem.
