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.

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.

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)
