New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm trying to work out what the deal is with opentype vs mac postscript fonts and how ligatures and alternates work.
Apparently Opentype fonts can have automatic insertion of old style figures, ligatures and small caps (last para http://www.itcfonts.com/Fonts/NewFonts/2006/May2006.htm) .. wtf? rad. Does this work in CS3?
Does that mean if you were using a MAC postscript font you'd have to insert your alternates and ligatures manually?
I'm looking at buying ITC Galliard for the sexy alternates and ligatures.
OpenType (does this come with the same characters as MAC postscript below??)
Should I just go old school and buy the MAC postscript?
