Greta Text

Numerals

As one would expect from a complex type system, Greta includes different numeral styles to cover all possible situations.

Proportional lining figures, which are most commonly used in newspaper settings, come as default figures in Greta.

Old style figures (also known as ranging figures) are available as an OpenType feature. Old style figures are more fitting in finer typography, as they are specifically designed to work well in running text, having the same proportions as the lowercase letters with their ascenders and descenders.

Tabular figures (TF) are for use in tables where numerals need to align vertically. These TF figures are available also as an OpenType feature. Tabular figures have fixed widths in all weights. Our OpenType fonts also include old-style tabular figures.

Greta includes special small caps figures which integrate well with the height of small capitals.

Superior and inferior figures for use in fractions, footnotes, etc. come as a feature in OpenType fonts.

Greta also offers circled numerals. Smart OpenType substitutions make them easily accessible. Finally all Typotheque fonts also include a slashed zero, to avoid confusion between the zero and capital O.
