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.

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 encoding

Character encoding is a table in a font or a computer operating system that maps character codes to glyphs in a font. Most operating systems today represent character codes with an 8-bit unit of data known as a byte. Thus, character encoding tables today are restricted to at most 256 character codes. Not all operating system manufacturers use the same character encoding. For example, the Macintosh platform uses the standard Macintosh character set as defined by Apple Computer, Inc., while the Windows operating system uses another encoding entirely, as defined by Microsoft. Fortunately, OpenType fonts (and standard Type 1 fonts) contain all the glyphs needed for both these encodings, so they work correctly not only with these two systems, but others as well.
