What is a ascii file?

Based on the English alphabet, the ASCII scheme was developed during the 1960s. It is the basis for most modern day character-encoding schemes. Until 2007, ASCII (pronounced AS-KEE) was the default encoding scheme of the World Wide Web. The ASCII scheme is made up of 128 characters, including alphabetical letters, numbers, punctuation marks and symbols as well as 33 control characters. ASCII is used to represent text on computers, telecommunications devices (like PBX systems). ASCII is used in e-mail, HTML and serves as the basis for UTI-8, currently the most popular web character-encoding scheme.  ASCII files can be converted to DOC files.
