caracter


Explanation:
Se utiliza con o sin acento, no hay unanimidad. Es muy común en informática, pero no es privativo de ella. Por ejemplo, los "caracteres chinos", es decir, los ideogramas.

Un ejemplo:

"Así, paraescribir el caracter que representa la letra A mayúscula escribimos: 'A'"
(www2.ing.puc.cl/iic1102/materia/cap4.htm )

Suerte!

signo


Explanation:
La palabra "caracter" suele usarse comúnmente en plural para indicar las letras de imprenta o los signos de escritura.
Yo usaría la palabra "signo" para expresar la palabra inglesa singular "character" en este contexto sencillo.
