Looking for a word

Throughout history, in latin alphabet languages, when they were being written, sometimes the writing was continuous (no word separation), sometimes spaces were left between words and sometimes a character was used to separate them, for example, in the case of latin, a middle-height dot. What's the word for that dot and for other symbols or flourishes used for the same purpose?
