Display serif with kerned old-style figures

DanShannon's picture

I'm currently designing a website featuring a centred type layout, and I'm looking for a serif typeface that fulfils some rather specific criteria.

The application is a list of projects, each with a year value (i.e. Project name 1965—1967). The type is set at 40 pixels in size (equivalent to 40pt size at 100% in InDesign).

I'm looking to use a display serif with old-style figures, which is available to license as a web font (ideally through an @fontface service). Manually kerning the numerals is beyond the scope of the project (since the number values are generated dynamically by a CMS) and as such I need a serif typeface with kerned Old style figures.

If anyone is aware of any options that fill the above criteria, I'd be much obliged if you could point me in the right direction.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I suspect that what you are really looking for is fonts with proportional old-style figures as default.
My Pratt and Richler fit the bill. (They are also kerned where appropriate.)
Available at MyFonts, FontSpring, WebINK and FontShop.
