ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange

Pronounciation: as'-key

ASCII is a standard way of representing characters and symbols in electronic form. Using standards increases efficiency and eliminates errors. Using standards requires discipline and sometimes restricts creativity. However, it is very useful for communication in large groups of users. The internet requires even more focus on standards, as it integrates users with different languages. The people who envisioned the internet, tried to set up a global communication platform. Using standards is a way to accomplish this objective.
