7 bit ASCII“Original” is actually another good term for 7 bit ASCII’s. Another term would be: “true” ASCII’s, because ASCII, standing for “American Standard Code for Information Interchange” is always 7 bit, using only ASCII code 32 (space) to 126 (tilde ~) ). Here is the US Charsset, starting with ASCII character 32 (space/blank) and ending with the ASCII character126 (tilde: ~). The space character is represented by the white block at the beginning.
