oldstyle

I'm having some troubles with the Calluna font by exljbris in combination with the LaTeX typesetting software. For the technical details I'm trying to get some support at stackexchange, so I won't bother you with it, but to make my problem reproducible for other people I need a font with the following properties:

  • Available for free, without registration
  • Provides both oldstyle and lining figures
  • Has oldstyle figures as default numerals, so the character called one is an oldstyle figure

When kerning fonts with both Lining and Oldstyle proportional numerals what is the generally accepted form when it comes to kerning? Are all numbers kerned with every other glyph or is it best just to kern 0-9 with all punctuation and parenteses/brackets/braces only? Interested to hear thoughts. Thanks.

Me again,

Could someone please explain to me what is the way to program this Opentype feature? I've been searching for info about this but I cannot seem to find anything conclusive. I've been looking at the way some fonts implement this feature and it seems to differ one from another; some substitute entire classes while other just seem to substitute in a glyph by glyph fashion. What is the way to go?

Thanks a lot!

Hi all, just hoping you could help me out here.

I'm making a type specimen book for my sophomore portfolio review and I'm trying to find distinguishing characters for twenty typefaces. I've been having some trouble finding information on some of the typefaces, so I turn it to you. I need at least 5 distinguishing characters for each, preferably in Roman or Regular, and why they distinguish the typeface. I'm thinking that I'm going to use Q in all of my designs, because almost every Q is different and special. I just need help with the why it is special and wording it appropriately.

Typefaces I still need information for:
ITC Cheltenham
Berkeley Oldstyle
Interstate
Minion

Hi,

I'd love this beautiful face identified.

Cheers

Mynaruse Royale is an expansion of Mynaruse Titling. It features script capitals and widely tracked and smaller titling capitals. Mynaruse Royale has plenty of character and, with its powerful and sharp serifs that draw the eye. Mynaruse Royale is useful in settings that call for titling with an extra touch of elegance, such as a storefront, wedding program or formal invitation.
Mynaruse Royale contains a number of OpenType alternates, including alternate forms for the capitals that are large, drop cap like capitals instead of the calligraphic script capitals found in the default forms. Additionally there are non widely tracked lowercase forms that work well with the included alternate characters and ligatures.

Anyone know if Gill Sans (or Bitstream's humanist 521) was ever oufitted with oldstyle figures for appropriate numerals?

Thanks

It's something I've never thought much about but I've seen it in a few fonts of late. Some fonts with oldstyle figures include currency symbols at or near the smallcap/OSF height. It seems like a good idea if you're going to have oldstyle numbers, but how frequently is this done? And which symbols should correspond to which of the varying number heights?
