Discussion:

The term "character type" is used in 16.3.17 [defns.ntcts], 28.3.1.1.1 [locale.category], 29.2.2 [iostreams.limits.pos], 29.7.5.2.1 [ostream.formatted.reqmts], and 29.7.5.2.4 [ostream.inserters.character], but the core language only defines "narrow character types" (6.8.1 [basic.fundamental]).

"wide-character type" is used in D.16 [depr.locale.stdcvt], but the core language only defines a "wide-character set" and "wide-character literal".
