A hexadecimal number system (hex) is a positional numeral system with base of 16. It uses 16 different symbols 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D and F (or alternatively a – f). Every hexadecimal digit represents 4 binary digits, called nibble. Two nibbles are a byte which is 8 bits. Hexadecimal numbers provide a more human-friendly representation of binary coded values. The prefix 0x is used in C and related languages, which would denote (FA)16 value by 0xFA.
ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is a character encoding standard for electronic communication. ASCII codes represent text in computers. The standard ASCII character set uses 7 bits for each character. There are also several larger 8 bits character sets. These sets have 128 additional characters, which are used to represent non-English chars, graphics or mathematics symbols. Most of the modern character-encoding schemes are based on ASCII standard but they support a lot of additional characters. For instance, in UTF-8 (dominant encoding on the WWW) the first 128 Unicode code points are the ASCII characters. It means that any ASCII text is also a UTF-8 text.
