All weights of Brioni Text include nine different kinds of numerals. Default numerals are ranging, or OsF (Old-style proportional Figures) for use in running text. Proportions of text figures are similar to ascenders and descenders of lower case characters. Lining figures for use with capitals letters, because their proportions match the height of caps. Small caps figures to match the height of small capitals. Tabular (both Lining and OsF), Superior and Inferior figures, and finally Circled and Circled inverted are available in our OpenType fonts.
