      If you expand the acronym, it stands to reason that ASCII is very
      American. ASCII stands for "American Standard Code for Information
      Interchange". Like many things American, it doesn't give much thought
      to other languages or cultures. Ignoring other languages and cultures
      is what's made this country great, if you listen to some of the more
      pig-headed isolationists in our government.

      I'll step off my soap box now. :)
