Nice work on Tourist Gothic, Paul!

Paul has done a very nice thing with the alternate forms in Tourist Gothic.

I quote from the read me:
"Stylistic sets have been designed to use all alternate characters together (set 1), or to apply alternates to one letter (series=all accented variations of that letter) only (sets 2-16)."

This seems very flexible. Now, if only we had a way for apps to report something meaningful in their UI, rather than just "Set 13"!

John, thanks for your compliment. I'm glad someone appreciates this typeface. I got this way of thinking from Mark Simonson, when he was talking about his stylistic sets in Proxima Nova.
Henry, basically what John is saying is that you can apply all the alternates at once or handpick which letters you want to be substituted by their alternates by using stylistic sets when using the OpenType version of Tourist Gothic.
