character

Any kind of typeset mark made on a page, including letters, numbers, punctuation marks, accents, dingbats (e.g. bullets). Technically, the term character is used to designate the mark generically, and is given an index number in electronic typesetting that points to the actual image, or glyph, stored in memory. However, in common usage character and glyph are often used interchangeably.

character

A character is a Platonic ideal reified into at least one glyph. For example the letter s is a character which is reified into several different glyphs: S , s , s , long-s, etc. Note that these glyphs can look fairly different from each other, however although the glyph for an integral sign might be the same as the long-s glyph, these are in fact different characters.
