Encoded Character (Unicode)
Last updated at 10:48 am UTC on 10 December 2015

Encoded Character is an association (or mapping) between an abstract character and a code point.

(See definition D11 in Section 3.4, Characters and Encoding.)

By itself, an abstract character> has no numerical value, but the process of “encoding a character” associates a particular code point with a particular abstract character, thereby resulting in an “encoded character.”
