New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Is there an official standard of what I should be calling my glyphs?
(And if not, why not?)
I'm especially interested to know what to call:
- small caps
- tabular, proportional, oldstyle and tabular oldstyle numbers
- superiors, inferiors, numerators and denominators
- upper case lining characters
- nut fraction alternates
- stylistic alternates (e.g. single storey a)
Any others I should know about?
Anyone know how Adobe do it and is that the received wisdom?
