Here is an example with 2 DropDownLists binded to the same ASCII values and after that only items from the first one have been converted to characters:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        DropDownList DropDownList1 = new DropDownList();
        DropDownList DropDownList2 = new DropDownList();
        foreach (ListItem li in DropDownList1.Items)
            li.Text = Server.HtmlDecode(li.Text);

It's seems that ascIIencoding class is exactly what you are after. To transform an ascii code to a char/or even string, i suggest you try:  ascIIencoding.getchars()  or ascIIencoding.getstring()

you may find more info. at :

Hope my suggestion helps
