New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I've read (mostly on Typophile) that in Spanish typography the tilde should point upwards, with the middle segment almost horizontal. So I designed a tilde like that. Of course, a spacing tilde should have the more common angle (for use in URLs, mathematics, etc.).
But I have two worries. The first is that the tilde on my "n" doesn't match the others. Does Spanish use a tilde on other characters? What about Spanish words in other-language texts? Will it look awkward?
My other worry is other languages that use the ntilde. Are there any? Is the Spanish-style acceptable/correct in these languages?
I know OpenType allows one to specify language-specific substitutions. Should I use them? What software actually implements this?
Lastly, have I got the shapes right?
