The category of character sets includes articles on specific character encodings (see the article for a precise definition, and for why the term "character set" should not be used). It includes those used in computer science (coded character sets (also known as character sets (this term should not be used anymore) or code pages), character encoding forms, character encoding schemes) and those that use non-numeric, pre-digital codes, such as electrical impulses. This category does not include unencoded character repertoires like the Windows Glyph List 4 or any of the articles in List of alphabets.

Articles pertaining to character encoding in general, or encoding in general, may be found in the parent categories, Category:Character encoding and Category:Encodings.

Much of this terminology is standardized in Unicode Technical Report #17 and ISO/IEC TR 15285:1998.
