From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
…base64 is a data encoding scheme whereby binary-encoded data is converted to printable ASCII characters. It is defined as a MIME content transfer encoding for use in internet e-mail. The only characters used are the upper- and lower-case Roman alphabet characters (A-Z, a-z), the numerals (0-9), and the “+” and “/” symbols, with the “=” symbol as a special suffix code.
