A source supporting that answer would be nice. As it stands now its more an assumption.

While ASCII is the simplist to work with, EBCDIC is widely used in the mainframe world, as it has a much larger character set (compared to ASCII's 128 (extendable to 256)).
Therefore a point of reference for this statement would help greatly.

More assumptions (and no data to support the answer). Someone writing the same question/answer somewhere else doesnt make it true. If i where to create a website and put the question there and put the answer to EBCDIC. Would that make the answer true? No offcourse not.

I'm not sure that ASCII is really (now) the correct answer.

Most systems these days fundamentally support Unicode (with ASCII being an effective sub-set (UTF-8)).

I thought it was a trick question... Unicode definately should be considered to outbar ASCII, don't understnad why it wasn't an answer.

Thought there's still a large set of mainframes that use EBCDIC, so went with EBCDIC.

Ah well... win some loose some.

I'd agree that Unicode is more of a universal standard than ASCII is these days, but given the options provided, ASCII would definitely be in front, I think--the fact it's used on tens of millions of PCs as opposed to a few tens of thousands of mainframes suggests that, if nothing else!

Paul, fair point...plus all the websites that have been built using ASCII... I used to be a web dev, so should know better.
