Hey Hey the MLE,
A couple weeks ago I got the latest newsletter from Hoefler&Co Fonts which discussed stylistic sets for webfonts. Always a bit exciting for me, as it shows that we have taken another little step forward to achieving more control over type online.
As you can see in the images above, there are many controls: commercial ampersands, raised punctuation, short-tailed Qs, etc etc... *rubs hands together.
Okay, true that stylistic sets have been around for awhile now, but I haven't really jumped on using them, as there was still some questions re browser support as well as load times. But now these are less of an issue, I am looking forward to trying them out.
Have a nice weekend my friend,
