; Mythgraveyard : ASCII or High ASCII



ASCII or High ASCII


 




Definition:

Text that uses characters other than the standard a-z. Most often seen in nearly inscrutable player names when playing online. To some, ascii names appear to be badges used to demonstrate one's elite computer skills, while to others it is little more than an annoying juvenile affectation. Technically the non-standard characters are called 'high ascii' because of their numerical ascii values.
