ASCII-encoded string, or ASCII encoding-string?
[...] apparently, you would put the hyphen after if it's "encoding", and before if it's "encoded"; not sure why that is
I think David just put it there to point to the semantic difference. It's either a string that is "ASCII encoded", or an "encoding string" that refers to ASCII in some way. Whether you put a hyphen or not is a secondary concern.
