I need a good term for a symbol set with certain characteristic.
Let's call it X and give a definition:
"X" is a set of visually consistent and different symbols. Visual consistence supposed to appear when the symbols are placed next to each other.
Examples of an "X":
- small latin letters
- capital latin letters ...
Question: what is X?
Clarification: In other words how do I solve the problem of ambiguities by an Internet search. Let's say I want to search for "positive trends in font developement?" With positive trends is meant technical graphical improvement of glyphs for sake of the legibility, readability and I don't want to hit the results about artistic variations of same old symbol set.
So how would I use the term "font" with intention to avoid ambiguity with font as replicas and modifications of Garamond? 99% of search results will lead to catalogues of replicas and grotesks for modern latin set.
