Bengala is a trendy new type system. The family is made up of a script style, an extended all-caps style, and an ornament set that includes the animal illustrations shown here.






Basically, the situation is that I am in need of a programmer with the skill necessary to program fonts by integrating the calt OpenType feature into them. I am more than willing to be taught these skills, as I will be creating multiple fonts utilizing this feature and possibly some other advanced ones. If anyone is interested and believes they are capable of such a task, please contact me at thepcnerd7@gmail.com. I highly appreciate any advice or input, and thank you for your time and willingness!

Hello,

I have a font that i'd like to utilise the calt feature, and have found Thomas Phinney's article [http://forums.adobe.com/thread/395648], among others [http://typophile.com/node/19625] to be most helpful. YET I still can't get my head around writing the feature so that it creates a more 'random' outcome.

The details are:
– x3 variants for all characters
– x3 classes [00 / 01 / 02] including one of each character, 79 characters in total [A–Z, a–z, 0-9, punctuation]
– feature currently looks like:

feature calt {
lookup calt_one {
sub @set_00 @set_00' by @set_01;
sub @set_01 @set_00' by @set_02;
} calt_one;

lookup calt_two {
sub @set_02 @set_00' by @set_02;
sub @set_01 @set_02' by @set_00;
sub @set_01 @set_00' by @set_02;
sub @set_00 @set_01' by @set_02;

I have this lookup for ordinals. It works OK for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc., and for Caps, 1ST, 2ND, 3RD, etc., but not for ordinals in French or Spanish, which use one or three ordinals e.g. 2º or 1ème.

How can I change my code to cater for one or more alpha characters after the digits? One to three superscripts would be OK, but I think one or more would be more flexible.

feature Ordinals ordn {
lookup Ordinals;
}
group @Digits [zero-nine];
group @Alphas [A-Z a-z];

lookup Ordinals{
context (@Digits) @Alphas @Alphas;
sub 0 Super;
sub 1 Super;
} lookup Super {
sub [A-Z] -> [uniEAA1 - uniEABA];
sub [a-z] -> [uniEAC1 - uniEADA];
}

I am using OpenType Compiler.

Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.

Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.

Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.

Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:
