ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange. It's a method of storing character information in seven or eight bits. Although ASCII is still in use, most Internet browsers use the more universal ISO Latin 1 set instead. Artists create ASCII art by painting pictures using ordinary letters, numbers and characters.
