American Standard Code for Information Interchange. Consists of a series of 256 characters to represent each of the series of each byte (8 bits) of the actively displayed text screen mode.
Can be alternatively achieved using the key sequence of holding alt then typing the appropriate combination of numbers using the numeric keypad, then releasing alt. Normally does not match most fonts, mainly because Microsoft is a bunch of bastards who do something that is 'technically correct' ignoring the fact if it's completely useless or not.

A string of 7 binary digits represents each character, used in most microcomputers. "ASCII" is short for: "American Standard Code for Information Interchange".

A character/symbol can be entered by holding "ALT" and then typing its code.

ASCII code for "$" is 36
