Hiding pictures in your source code

ASCII is a label used to describe a pictures made solely from text. This process was used heavily in the 80s for software programs and games. ASCII is not implemented as much today with the introduction of pictures in computing. Although ASCII is not as heavily used in programs and games as it used to be, ASCII can be useful in many web applications such as blogs and email. ASCII can even be hidden in a websites html by using the following script: Place <no script> before the your ASCII picture and next time a visitor to your site views your html code they will find a little surprise. Often the ASCII gets a little jumbled when placed into your html code but it is still a neat affect. There are many ASCII sites that allow you to convert pictures to ASCII. One of my favorites is http://www.glassgiant.com/misc_ascii.php
