Basically, AsciiArt consists of pictures which are created without using graphic elements. They are "non-graphical graphics". Its palette is limited to the symbols and characters that is available to you on your (QWERTY/AZERTY/etc..)-keyboard.

The simplest forms of AsciiArt are the [[Smiley]] and its kin, little two or three character combinations for expressing emotion in text. :)
