[Pan·American, The River Made No Sound. Record cover tribute.]

The mid-dot is a different entity than the mathematical dot used for multiplication and other functions, and it's also different from the hyphenation point used to mark syllables in a word; although some or all of these may in practice look and behave alike. Bullets and other, more rare punctuation characters are more distant relatives of the mid-dot.

Minima's mid-dot has a lot of extra·whitespace by default, to make it extra noticeable and well-balanced. The distance reverts back to normal when actual spaces are used · around the mid-dot.
