The term "character type" is used in 3.36 [defns.ntcts], [locale.category], 31.2.3 [iostreams.limits.pos], [ostream.formatted.reqmts], and [ostream.inserters.character], but the core language only defines "narrow character types" (6.8.2 [basic.fundamental]).

"wide-character type" is used in D.26 [depr.locale.stdcvt], but the core language only defines a "wide-character set" and "wide-character literal".
