Stylistic Set

Open Type scripting dilemma


hello folks, i have aquestion about ot scripting.

the font i'm working on is uppercase only and it has a lot of stylistic sets. of course i had to include lowercase glyphs too, but they just mirror the uppercase glyphs. however, for the alternative glyphs, i don't do uc and lc for each one of them, only the uc.

then i put only the uc glyphs in my stylistic sets classes and so for this to work with the lc as well, i'm doing a lookup that changes lowercase into uppercase before each substitution.

feature ss01 {
lookup ss01a { sub @lower by @upper; } ss01a;
lookup ss01b { sub @class_0 by @class_1; } ss01b; # they contain only uppercase
} ss01;

Microsoft Word 2010 OpenType Stylistic set

Stiking out at the Microsoft Community so I thought I'd try here!

We're updating a series we do in Word to 2010 and an OTF. The note reference numbers in the series are "special" so in the 2003 template the Footnote Reference style was set to a different font than the Default Paragraph Font.

For use in the 2010 template the new OTF font has a stylistic set for these "special" numbers that for some reason isn't getting applied to the embedded footnote or endnote references.
