ASCII isn't necessarely 7 bits wide. There are 128 different characters, so you could encode them using just 7 bits. But that's pretty unusual, especially nowadays, given that bytes are typically 8 bits wide. Common ways of encoding ASCII characters use bytes, with either the high bit being 0, or by using one of the bits as a parity bit - to be able to do some error detection.

Also, ISO 8859 is a class of character sets, all supersets of ASCII, having the code points 0x80 - 0x9F undefined and the highest code point being 0xFF. But there are various mappings of the code points 0xA0 - 0XFF to characters; one of those mappings (for Western European languages) being ISO 8859-1, and only that one is known as ISO Latin-1. It's in many countries that used ISO 8859-1 superceeded by ISO 8859-15, which includes a € sign. But there are other mappings part of ISO 8859 as well.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
