That's because it doesn't exist.

(I think you mean ISO 8859-1, not ASCII; ASCII is only 7 bits.)

At <URL:http://www.oreilly.com/people/staff/crism/entities.html#chars>
you'll find all of the characters in 8859-1 as seen by your Web
browser.  Elsewhere on that page are a bunch of entity references, but
the service mark is not among them.

The service mark can be found in Unicode at U+2120, so you can use
&#x2120; or &#8480; but don't expect every Web browser to deal with
it.  I'd probably just use (SM) instead, or maybe <sup>(SM)</sup>.

(Don't just use <sup>SM</sup>, because in some browsers
CRI<sup>SM</sup> will show up as CRISM.
