Where it is Glyphs

In information technology, a glyph (pronounced GLIHF ; from a Greek word meaning carving) is a graphic symbol that provides the appearance or form for a character. A glyph can be an alphabetic or numeric font or some other symbol that pictures an encoded character. The following is from a document written as background for the Unicode character set standard.

An ideal characterization of characters and glyphs and their relationship may be stated as follows:
A character conveys distinctions in meaning or sounds. A character has no intrinsic appearance.
A glyph conveys distinctions in form. A glyph has no intrinsic meaning.
One or more characters may be depicted by one or more glyph representations (instances of an abstract glyph) in a possibly context dependent fashion.
In the Unicode standard, a character is stated to be an abstract entity and not a glyph (some visual representation of a character).

In the 1930’s, the German Standards committee Deutsches Institut Normung (DIN) officially proposed DIN 1451 as the standard type of lettering to be used in the field of road traffic. The purpose of this standard was to lay down a style of lettering which is timeless and easily legible. Unfortunately, these early letters lacked elegance and were not properly designed for typographic applications.
