|You mean "what is a glyph?"
A glyph is a little shape that is used to represent a character on the screen or on a printed page. Characters are not always the same as a glyph, but in general they are the same: One glyph = One character.
Sometimes though a character is made of multiple glyphs. And sometimes multiple characters map to the same glyph.
