I like the definition of "character" in ASCII:
3.3 Character. A member of a set of elements used for the organization, control, or representation of data.

This, by the way, is the exact same definition as in ISO 646, ISO 2022, and yes, even ISO 10646 (2003). It was the best of times...

I've always thought that this was not a "definition" as much as some necessary part of the description.

There surely must be other "elements" that are used that way, and that are not characters.
