New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have dozens of micro-typography books but I always seem to
run into problems that are not mentioned in any of them,
anyway that's what typophile.com is for I guess.
I'm typesetting a book that has a lot of notes, a few of these
notes come up in text that is smaller(9pt) than the main text(11pt)
because they are in the middle of a poem or quoted article. I am not using
superior figures because the typeface (Sabon) only has 1,2 and 3 what i am
doing instead is using linear figures between brackets [x].
ok my question is: when a note comes up in the 9pt text, should i have
the [x] the same size as the main text or the size of the text it is
used with...basically should the [x] always be 11pt or should it change
when used with 9pt text?
