    Default Is this Caesar cipher optimal? PVP

    I have created this really simple cipher, do you have any recommendations on how to improve it or ideas how to create it differently?

    UPDATE: Not a caesar cipher!

    Thank you

    	String word="Hello";
    	word=word.toLowerCase();
    	for(int i=0; i<word.length(); i++) {
    		if(word.charAt(i)=='a'|| word.charAt(i)=='e'|| word.charAt(i)=='i'|| 
    		word.charAt(i)=='o'|| word.charAt(i)=='u') {
    			System.out.print(word.charAt(i));
    			System.out.print('p');  
    			System.out.print(word.charAt(i));
    		} else {
    			System.out.print(word.charAt(i)); 
    		}
    	}

    Can you explain the steps in the algorithm that you are trying to implement?
    Does the program's output match the expected output?

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:

    [code]
    **YOUR CODE GOES HERE**
    [/code]

    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    String word = "Hello";
            word = word.toLowerCase();
            for (int i = 0; i < word.length(); i++) {
                char ch = word.charAt(i);
                if (ch == 'a' || ch == 'e' || ch == 'i' || ch == 'o' || ch == 'u') {
                    System.out.print(ch);
                    System.out.print('p');
                    System.out.print(ch);
                } else {
                    System.out.print(ch);
                }
            }
