    Please see John Hudson's post regarding terminology on another list to
    understand why Doug Ewell calls "glyph" an inappropriate choice here,
    specifically the end of the diacritic section:

    Rather than (mis)using the term "glyph" in this context, it might be
    better to call it a "grapheme/typeform" or even spell it out as "letter
    or letter-with-mark combination".
