Details

ASCII , also called US-ASCII is a Charset for encoding american language Characters and control codes into 7-bit values.
It has a long history and got numerous extensions to cover further Characters like Umlauts of other languages.

Unless MIME is used 7-bit US-ASCII is still the default Charset in many Network-Protocols.
If ASCII is stored in Octets (8-bit Bytes) the MSB (0x80) has to be cleared.

FRITZ!OS

Webinterface

Since FRITZ!OS was initially designed for the german market AVM used the ASCII extension ISO-8859-1 (Western Europe),
and its revision ISO-8859-15 (which also covers the Euro sign).

Later FRITZ!OS step by step switched to UTF-8. More details in the Charset article.

NAS

Linux filesystem NLS support for ASCII was added in fw 4.85 - see nls_ascii.ko.
The Kernel-Config variable enabling it is CONFIG_NLS_ASCII. More details in the NLS article.
