  ASCII Table / Extended ASCII Codes
ASCII - The American Standard Code for Information Interchange is a standard seven-bit code that was proposed by ANSI in 1963, and finalized in 1968.
ASCII was established to achieve compatibility between various types of data processing equipment.
The Extended ASCII Character Set also consists of 128 decimal numbers and ranges from 128 through 255 (using the full 8-bits of the byte) representing additional special, mathematical, graphic, and foreign characters.

  Extended ASCII -- Facts, Info, and Encyclopedia article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Since ASCII is a seven-bit code and most computers manipulate data in eight-bit (A sequence of 8 bits (enough to represent one character of alphanumeric data) processed as a single unit of information) bytes, many extensions use the additional 128 codes available by using all eight bits of each byte.
Because these ASCII extensions have so many variants, it is necessary to identify which set is being used for a particular text for it to be interpreted correctly.
However, because the most-used characters (those in ASCII, the seven-bit code points) are common to all sets--even most proprietary ones like the Macintosh--failure to correctly identify a character set often suffers no adverse consequences if the user is typing in English.

ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange, generally pronounced ass-key) is a character set and a character encoding based on the Roman alphabet as used in modern English and other Western European languages.
ASCII is a seven-bit code, meaning that it uses the integers representable with seven binary digits (a range of 0 to 127 decimal) to represent information.
ASCII was first published as a standard in 1963 by the American Standards Association (ASA), which later became ANSI.

ASCII art is shared freely, to remove the artist's tag and steal the art or claim it as your own is very disrespectful to the artist and their generousity in sharing their art.
In the standard ASCII character set, the first 32 values are assigned to communication and printer control codes—nonprinting characters, such as backspace, carriage return, and tab—that are used to control the way information is transferred from one computer to another or from a computer to a printer.
Although ASCII lacks both the accent marks and the special characters used in European languages and is unable to represent characters in non-Roman alphabets used in many languages, it is internationally important because it is the most universal character-coding system.

For example, the ASCII code for the capital letter "A" is always represented by the order number 65, which is easily representable using 0s and 1s in binary: 65 expressed as a binary number is 1000001.
The standard ASCII table defines 128 character codes (from 0 to 127), of which, the first 32 are control codes (non-printable), and the remaining 96 character codes are representable characters:
