yes, a tittle. has anyone heard this term for the dot over the lc i?
If so, I'd like to do a wiki entry on it.
This is the book I found it in.
I copied this from OED Online about the tittle.
This is a bit more concise, though.
Thanks JP, is this common knowlege among typophiles?
It's commonly used in the saying "jot and tittle" from the KJV of the bible. Apparently jot refers to a small letter (originally yod, apparently).
There was a recent thread on this subject on the ATypI list. Featured some good material and quotes which could be reused in your wiki.
Call me uninformed, where can I access that ATypI thread?
members area of ATypI.org - if you're not a member you'll likely need to find a member to send you it (if that's allowed)
