    They use 0-9, A-F, and a-f.

    Hex is used mostly by programmers, mostly for computing, and mostly in
    programming languages that have the digits and Latin letters built-in, and
    that's what compilers expect to see. Hex doesn't have an independent
    existence out in non-computing culture for, e.g., signs in the market place
    or monetary values.
