I just realized where the discrepancy comes from: you *replaced* one character 
of the original message with a special character, so the resulting alphabet 
size didn’t change, whereas I *added* a non-alphanumeric character to the 
message, which did change my alphabet size.

This calculator doesn’t know about “special characters,” all it knows about are 
the number of unique input symbols it is given and how that relates to the 
total message size.
