i'm trying to collect some technical information on the making of wood type and i'm having trouble understanding what i thought was a pretty simple and clear rule of typography. Shouldn't the curve of "rounded" capital letters like "O" or "U" go pass the baseline just a little? I know that this is necessary in order for the rounded letter not to appear visually smaller than the others...it is a little hard to explain...I'm attaching a file...thanks.
