Wikipedia definition:

The American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII, pronunciation: /ˈæski/ ASS-kee;[3]) is a character-encoding scheme originally based on the English alphabet. ASCII codes represent text in computers, communications equipment, and other devices that use text. Most modern character-encoding schemes are based on ASCII, though they support many additional characters.

ASCII developed from telegraphic codes. Its first commercial use was as a seven-bit teleprinter code promoted by Bell data services. Work on the ASCII standard began on October 6, 1960, with the first meeting of the American Standards Association’s (ASA) X3.2 subcommittee. The first edition of the standard was published during 1963,[4][5] a major revision during 1967,[6] and the most recent update during 1986.[7] Compared to earlier telegraph codes, the proposed Bell code and ASCII were both ordered for more convenient sorting (i.e., alphabetization) of lists and added features for devices other than teleprinters.

Select the character you want to inset in the title and then look to the right of the symbol and type the exact code. Thats it very simple and easy to use.
