A SEVIS ID on an I-20 form issued by the U.S. government starts with a letter N. In the following digits, does it contain a non-numeric letter?

Background: I am filling in DS-160 away from home to obtain an F-1 visa and I have to fill my SEVIS ID in the form. I do not have access to my original I-20, which was sent to my home, and had my I-20 sent to me by FAX. Unfortunately, I am having hard times telling 8's from B's printed on the photocopied I-20, and I am not sure as to what really is my SEVIS ID printed on the original I-20.
