Hi I'm playing with a Binary to text & text to binary converter. I can't 
figure out how to replace the characters (first stage: text to binary).

I thought lists would be the best but I really don't know how to use 
them... here's my code:
#! /usr/bin/env python
A = "01000001"
B = "01000010"
C = "01000011"
D = "01000100"
E = "01000101"
F = "01000110"
G = "01000111"
H = "01001000"
I = "01001001"
J = "01001010"
K = "01001011"
L = "01001100"
M = "01001101"
N = "01001110"
O = "01001111"
P = "01010000"
Q = "01010001"
R = "01010010"
S = "01010011"
T = "01010100"
U = "01010101"
V = "01010110"
W = "01010111"
X = "01011000"
Y = "01011001"
Z = "01011010"

# Symbols
exclamationPoint = "0010 0001"
hash = "0010 0011"
dollar = "001 0100"
percent = "0010 0101"
_and = "0010 0110"
parentheses = "0010 1000"
closeParentheses = "0010 1001"
comma = "0010 1100"
dash = "0010 1101"
period = "0010 1110"
underline = "0101 1111"

# Numbers
zero = "00110000"
one = "00110001"
two = "00110010"
three = "00110011"
four = "00110100"
five = "00110101"
six = "00110110"
seven = "00110111"
eight = "00111000"
nine = "00111001"

ltra = "a"
ltrb = "b"
ltrc = "c"
while True:
    text = raw_input("Enter text: ")
    text = list(text)

Thanks,
    Joe
