    Characters and ASCII Equivalents

    Here are some of the more commonly used characters and their ASCII equivalents.

    Pronounced ask-ee, ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) 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.

    Here are some of the more commonly used characters and their ASCII equivalents. To use a character just copy and paste the ASCII symbol into the formatting of your Web page at the spot where you want the character to show up.
