The dotted circle, in Unicode U+25CC dotted circle (HTML: ◌), is a typographic character used to illustrate the effect of a combining mark, such as a diacritic mark.

Illustration[edit]

A Unicode combining mark combines with a preceding character. When used as stand-alone, it would combine unintentionally with a preceding character (possibly a space):

  • Diacritic ̂ used stand alone between regular spaces
  • Diacritic ◌̂ used after a character

Using the generic dotted circle character also shows the relative positioning of the diacritic.
