Subject: Character set: definition candidate


 From Lars Marius Garshol, the current candidate is:

Character set: A set of abstract characters with an integer value for 
each character, which is used to represent it. An abstract character 
corresponds closely to the common-sense concept of a letter, but also 
includes punctuation, digits, whitespace, and other special symbols. 
Abstract characters are independent of any specific visual design, which 
is left for fonts to provide.

Any strong feelings one way or the others?

Be aware that I will be posting a new term with definition on this 
coming Monday so let's wrap this one up!

Hope everyone is having a great day!
