That's true, it makes no distinction. The context is a system that
normally searches all available fonts for a glyph at the given codepoint.
If you see the .notdef glyph it is telling you that "no font installed on
your system has a glyph for this codepoint." There are also different
glyphs that appear for the PUA codepoints, for illegal codepoints, and in a
few other cases.
