From User Agent Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (2002-12-17) | Glossary for this source

In this document, a document character set (a concept from SGML) is a collection of abstract characters that a format specification allows to appear in an instance of the format. A document character set consists of: A "repertoire": A set of abstract characters, such as the Latin letter "A," the Cyrillic letter "I," and the Chinese character meaning "water."Code positions: A set of integer references to characters in the repertoire. For instance, the character set required by the HTML 4 specification [HTML4] is defined in the Unicode specification [UNICODE]. Refer to "Character Model for the World Wide Web" [CHARMOD] for more information about document character sets.
