ASCII Table: ASCII Codes, Values, Character Map, Symbols, HTML

ASCII Table and Description

ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange. Computers can only understand numbers, so an ASCII code is the numerical representation of a character such as 'a' or '@' or an action of some sort. ASCII was developed a long time ago and now the non-printing characters are rarely used for their original purpose. Below is the ASCII character table and this includes descriptions of the first 32 non-printing characters. ASCII was actually designed for use with teletypes and so the descriptions are somewhat obscure. If someone says they want your CV however in ASCII format, all this means is they want 'plain' text with no formatting such as tabs, bold or underscoring - the raw format that any computer can understand. This is usually so they can easily import the file into their own applications without issues. Notepad.exe creates ASCII text, or in MS Word you can save a file as 'text only'

What is ASCII?

  • Acronym for the American Standard Code for Information Interchange. Pronounced ask-ee, ASCII is a code for representing English characters as numbers, with each letter assigned a number from 0 to 127. For example, the ASCII code for uppercase M is 77. Most computers use ASCII codes to represent text, which makes it possible to transfer data from one computer to another.

  • For a list of commonly used characters and their ASCII equivalents, refer to the ASCII page in the Quick Reference section.

  • Text files stored in ASCII format are sometimes called ASCII files. Text editors and word processors are usually capable of storing data in ASCII format, although ASCII format is not always the default storage format. Most data files, particularly if they contain numeric data, are not stored in ASCII format. Executable programs are never stored in ASCII format.

  • The standard ASCII character set uses just 7 bits for each character. There are several larger character sets that use 8 bits, which gives them 128 additional characters. The extra characters are used to represent non-English characters, graphics symbols, and mathematical symbols. Several companies and organizations have proposed extensions for these 128 characters. The DOS operating system uses a superset of ASCII called extended ASCII or high ASCII. A more universal standard is the ISO Latin 1 set of characters, which is used by many operating systems, as well as Web browsers.

ASCII Character Codes

The ASCII character set comprises only codes 0–127. Codes 0–31 and 127 are non-printing control characters and are shown at the bottom of this page if you need to know them. ASCII characters are displayed here with a green background.

Codes 128–255, along with the ASCII set, make up the Extended ASCII or ISO Latin 1 character set. This set is technically called ISO-8859 1. These characters are displayed here with a yellow background. Codes 128–159 in the Latin 1 set are non-printing control characters.

Characters 128–159 as shown on this chart do not belong to the Latin 1 character set. They are part of the Windows-1252 character set and can be used with most Windows applications, including MS Word. These characters are displayed here with a blue background. They should NOT be used directly on web pages. If you want to use non-ASCII characters on a web page, use the proper numeric character reference or HTML entity. All of these characters may be used on a web page by specifying the numeric character reference or HTML entity.

At the end of the page you will find a small table that shows how Microsoft Word uses some of the ASCII control characters.

HTML ASCII Characters

HTML ASCII characters listed in numerical order

The characters are listed in ascending numerical sequence according to the ASCII code values as shown in column one, below.

ASCII codes in the range 0-31 cannot be displayed.

A few ASCII codes in the range 32-255 are not recognised by either Netscape 3 or Internet Explorer 3.

ASCII characters in the range 32-127 are very likely to have the correct symbol displayed against the code value and name.

I have added the names of characters in the range 128-255 according to what was displayed on my computer screen. You may find that some of the names do not match their characters or code values.
