What's so hard about ??

do you got one for "ye"

Ascii 232 is capital thorn "". Never
found an ascii ye

ascii 255 is close, but not quite there

Unlike thorn, "ye" is a word," not a character. There are no ASCII
codes for words.

One might argue that the letter I is both a character and a word. As a
character, it has an ASCII code. Would it not retain that code even when
it's used as a word? ;-)
