I have seen a few buildings with the basments lettered. The first basement
is "A Level", the second basement is "B Level", etcetera. They could also
be numbered B1, B2, B3, &c. as you descend.

You could give basements negative numbers, but then you'd have to number
the ground floor zero, and everybody but engineers and mathematicians would
be confused. =^>
