What are the rules of Cryptogram?

The rules of the cryptogram puzzle are very simple:

You are given a piece of text that is enciphered somehow - that is, with most puzzles, each letter is substituted with a letter or number of the same, or a different alphabet, and you need to work out which letter in the native alphabet is being coded by the letters you are given.

Thus standardly for instance you might see a piece of text that initially looks like gobbledygook, 'QWE RETER DFGD EWW', but each letter is substuted for another, so 'Q' might be 'E'. and so forth.

You need to use logic and knowledge of the letters and words of the language to crack the cipher and work out the message by working out which letter is representing which.
