Pretty sure its a mirror code, so imagine a mirror between m and n in the alphabet. B relects to Y, L to O and T to G etc.

ABCDEFGHIJKLM|NOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Thus KZTV becomes PAGE


I used to encourage mine to draw a line there on the alphabet provided at the top of the page to remind them to look for mirror codes.

Its mirror image.
Draw a line in between M & N

B is 2nd letter ascending or from a and Y is 2nd letter descending or from z
L is 12th...from a.................................O is 12th from z
so on and so forth

Hope it helps.

Follows an old post of mine which explains mirroe codes...

MIRROR CODES

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

Immediately put a line between the M and N to signify the mirror.

If the code for ESTATE is VHGZGV

What is the code for HOUSE

Is it a mirror. Look at the first letter of the word and code are they mirrors = yes E is 5 in from the beginning of the alphabet and V is 5 in form the end. Must make a second check. Find a pair of letters that are obvious if possible. In this case A is obviously the mirror of Z.

Checks done. Proceed as mirror code.

What is the mirror of H = S
What is the mirror of O = L
What is the mirror of U= F
what is the mirror of S= H
What is the mirror of E= V

I teach my children to know the alphabet well. I explain that the mirror is between M and N ie 13 letters each side of the mirror. I also show them that E is the 5th letter from the left and V is the 5th letter from the right.

With this knowledge it makes it easier to find mirrors reasonably quickly.

If they are looking for mirror of P its 3 away from the mirror, 3 away from the other side of the mirror is K

If they are looking for the mirror of F, they know E is 5th, therefore F is 6th. they know V is 5th so the sixth is U.

If they are looking for the mirror of X then its 3 away from the right end so its pair is 3 away from the left end.= C
