Who said anything about character codes, I thought we were talking about

It comes down to what you mean by "an ASCII character". Do you mean "a
character that has a representation in ASCII", or do you mean "the ASCII
representation of a character"? To my mind, since the noun is "character",
and "ASCII" is used adjectivally, you mean the former.
