you learn something new every day

i      j

I’ve always known what a cedilla is, what a tilde is, or even what an umlaut is…… but only recently did I find out that the dot on a lowercase i or j is called a tittle. But more generally, according to, ‘a dot or other small mark in writing or printing, used as a diacritic, punctuation, etc’ can be considered a tittle.
