Diacritical marks, sometimes referred to as diacritic marks or the "short-hand" term diacriticals, are small marks found above or below a basic character which change the pronunciation of that character. For example, the acute accent over the "e" in the character "é" is a diacritical mark.

Characters with diacritical marks may be proofed different ways in DP projects. If the needed character is available in an active character suite, it may be directly input or selected from a picker. If it is not in an active character suite it should be represented by the method described in Proofing Guidelines—Characters with Diacritical Marks.
