Try it!  You can tinker with this using the message box.  Remember, 
baseConvert works on numerals.

You can also get some more info from the baseConvert() entry in the 
Dictionary.

The numerical value (number) of the numeral is limited to 4294967295 or 
2147483647 (decimal) depending on your Revolution version.

You might be interested in trying binary, octal, or (if inspired by 
Douglas Adam's Hitchhiker series) base 13.

(The answer is yes.)
