ASCII Codes

The American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) is a character encoding scheme developed by American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to represent English alphabet characters, numbers, punctuation symbols and control characters. The 128 ASCII characters are encoded into 7-bit binary number, and later extended to include Extended ASCII which is represented in 8-bit characters. ASCII represents English Text, and has 128 characters including 33 non-printing control characters. ASCII was originally designed to be used with Teletype machines, but later standardized to support features needed by non-teleprinter devices.

Linux and non-Windows operating systems use ASCII to represent text files, IBM operating systems use Extended Binary Coded Decimal Interchange Code (EBCDIC) and Microsoft Windows operating systems use Unicode.

ASCII character codes, HTML entities and descriptions

The first 32 and the last DELETE characters are non-printable control characters.
