It's coded hexadecimal on sexagesimal. For sexagesimal digits, I use 0-9, A-Z, a-x. For hexadecimal sub-base, I use bold, italic, underline and strikethrough styles and combinations.
Numbers are represented that way:
Base 10=Base 960
30=U
31=V
32=W
36=a
60=0
120=0
180=0
240=0
480=0
960=10
961=11
1920=20
I can use 960 digits as a single character.

I prefer my system over Unicode. You can test divisibility for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, 60 more easily.
