The ASCII Character Set

 

ASCII stands for the “American Standard Code for Information Interchange”. It was designed in the early 60′s, as a standard character-set for computers and hardware devices like teleprinters and tapedrives.

ASCII is a 7-bit character set containing 128 characters.

It contains the uppercase and lowercase English letters from A to Z, as well as the numbers from 0-9 and some special characters.

The character-sets used in modern computers, HTML, and Internet are all based on ASCII.

The 128 ASCII characters and their equivalent HTML entity codes are listed in the table below.
