New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm unsure of the best way to present this paragraph. The first has oldstyle figures and the second has lining.
There's a mix of currency (R), numbers, percentages and times of day.
To my eye the lining figures look neatest, but perhaps I should think about using oldstyle because it's part of an extended block of text where there will be other numerals dotted around.
I've turned the am and pm into small caps and now wonder if the R (rand) currency symbol should be a small cap too (if I go with OSF). Is it conventional to have the currency symbol before the numeral or after?
(And I've just noticed that hyphen between Cape Town and Simon's Town, which I'll change to the word 'to'.)
