Viewing Non-Printable ASCII Characters

ASCII text can contain non-printable characters which will not be visible when you open a text file in NotePad. The non-printable characters include not only line feeds and carriage returns, but also characters such as those used to mark the end of text; end of transmission; tabs; and file separators.

To review these characters, enter the text in an advanced text editor such as NotePad ++.
