I'll give you a hint:

The ASCII code for a question mark is 63. What line in your code might be printing the numerical representation of a letter by mistake?

Perhaps simplifying even further: What line prints?

Perhaps you can start by showing us the output you get. It will also help if you describe how it differs from what you expect. Then you can use the suggestions above to track down the cause of this difference.
