Your question is somewhat vague. Can you elaborate some? Do you want to create a text file?

ASCII was developed in the early days of computing to basically assign a numeric value to a alphanumeric character (A-Z, 0-9). Shell scripts and configuration files are all ASCII text files. Programs are binary. Data files can be either text or binary depending on the application.

are considered extended ASCII characters. You should be able to select these characters using the gnome character map if installed.
