That's correct a binary number is nothing but a number to the base 2. There are also
Octal numbers - base 8
Hexadecimal - base 16
and so on... and of course the good old decimals, base 10 :P
The representation of letters with numbers is a whole different story. The need for the electronical representation of characters in computers gave birth to the so called ASCII table(pronounced "askee"). Here every character has a numerical value assigned, which is initially a decimal value, e.g. B is 66, M is 77 and W is 87. Since the computer eventually only deals with 1s and 0s (ups or downs of electrical current in the transistors on the silicon chips) those values are converted to binary, e.g. B = 1000010, M = 1001101, W = 1010111, so the computer can actually "understand" and store the values.
