Appropriate feature tag for miniscule superscrpt top marks?


I need advice on the most appropriate feature tag to use for discretionary substitution of word final letters by the miniscule superscript top mark forms found in the unicode ranges [0363 - 036F] and [1DD3 - 1DE6]. I am currently using 'clig' as a working feature tag and treating each minisculle superscript as a contextual ligature of a full stop plus its base glyph to be substituted whenever a space, comma, or another full stop follows.

feature clig { # contextual liguatures
# Latin
sub period' a' @class58 by uni0363;
sub period' e' @class58 by uni0364;
sub period' i' @class58 by uni0365;
sub period' o' @class58 by uni0366;
sub period' u' @class58 by uni0367;
sub period' c' @class58 by uni0368;
} clig;

Indices : Terminology : Case

In current practice, usage of the term case most likely refers to the use of uppercase (capital) or lowercase letters. See some examples below. In letterpress practice, case refers to the physical box (case), usually wooden, that a given set of letters is stored. Capital letters were stored in the upper (top) case and lowercase letters were stored in the lower (bottom) case.


ALL CAPS – All letters are capitalized.

Title Case – The first letter of each word is capitalized.

Sentence case – where the first character is capital and the remaining words are lowercase.
