Discussion:

The term "character type" is used in 20.3.16 [defns.ntcts], 25.3.1.1.1 [locale.category], 30.2.2 [iostreams.limits.pos], 30.7.5.2.1 [ostream.formatted.reqmts], and 30.7.5.2.4 [ostream.inserters.character], but the core language only defines "narrow character types" (6.7.1 [basic.fundamental]).

"wide-character type" is used in D.17 [depr.locale.stdcvt], but the core language only defines a "wide-character set" and "wide-character literal".
