alternate glyphs

Is there any informal standard on how to choose which character variant (cv01 through cv99) or stylistic set (cv01 through cv20) a certain glyph or group of glyphs should go into?
Alternatively, has someone conducted a survey what actual typefaces put in these features?

With CSS Fonts 3, there is a higher-level language to add mnemonics for these enumerated features (and some more) when used with the font-variant-alternates property.

@font-feature-values FontFamilyName {
  @styleset {insular: 1; uncial: 2; unicase: 3;} /* ssXY */
  @character-variant {initial: 1; medial: 2; final: 3;} /* cvXY */
  @stylistic {cute: 1;} /* salt index */

Hi,

Running into a strange issue on a font I am working on for a client. Created fractions, and the 1/8 fraction will not show up in the glyph palette in Illustrator, but will show up in InDesign (all other fractions I created show up properly). Is this an Adobe/AI/INDD issue or am I doing something wrong in FLS?

Also, the "notequal" glyph shows up incorrectly in AI (showing up as a glyph that I didn't create), but shows up as the proper glyph in INDD (see attached image- correct glyph is the top image).

Anyone run into this, and have a fix/solution?

Thanks for your help.

Basically, the situation is that I am in need of a programmer with the skill necessary to program fonts by integrating the calt OpenType feature into them. I am more than willing to be taught these skills, as I will be creating multiple fonts utilizing this feature and possibly some other advanced ones. If anyone is interested and believes they are capable of such a task, please contact me at thepcnerd7@gmail.com. I highly appreciate any advice or input, and thank you for your time and willingness!
