Ligatures are designed to correct awkward combinations where letters may collide. This font contains an extended set of ligatures beyond the basic “fi” and “fl” ligatures found in most fonts. These special ligatures can include “ff”, “ffi”, “ffl” and other special letter combinations.




The Caps to Small Caps OpenType feature changes Capital letters to Small Capital letters.




These letterforms are smaller versions of the normal capitals and are designed to be visually compatible with the lowercase characters of a typeface. They can be used to introduce the first words at the beginning of a story, or to highlight key words within text. They are also commonly used when setting acronyms or abbreviations in text. When selected it replaces lowercase glyphs with small caps.




These figures are designed with ascenders and descenders and have features and proportions compatible with the lowercase characters of the typeface. Oldstyle figures are typically used for text settings because they blend in well with the optical flow and rhythm of the lowercase alphabet. Fonts with oldstyle figures can include both proportional and tabular versions.




Most fonts include lining figures that are designed to be compatible with the capital letters. They are usually capital height or slightly smaller and are typically designed with the same widths, also known as tabular widths. Tabular lining figures are especially useful when setting columns of number, such as in financial reports. Fonts with proportional lining figures also include a set of lining figures that have unique widths that are determined by the shape of the figure. Proportional lining figures are preferred when setting certain text, such as an all-capital headline.




Superior and inferior figures, also known as superscript and subscript letterforms, are used for footnote references, chemical compounds, and as mathematical exponents.




Inferior figures, also known as subscript letterforms, are used for chemical compounds, and as mathematical exponents.




These fonts contain superior letterforms that are used when creating ordinals, which specify position in a numbered series, and in certain English, French and Spanish abbreviations








Several fonts include additional alternate letters. Barmeno italics and some of Akzidenz-Grotesk Condensed weights contain them.




Titling capitals are specially designed letterforms, such as ornate, inline, white-stroked or refined versions of regular capitals, designed for use in all-capital settings or as initial capitals. Titling capitals also have specific letterspacing that lends itself to all-capital settings.




These fonts contain special alternate letterforms for use in all-capital text settings.
