alternate glyphs


Alternate Glyphs are alternative designs for a given character in a font, often substitutable via OpenType technology.

Regular Typotheque fonts support over 100 languages and advanced typographic features such as small caps, different numeral styles, alternative characters and special symbols. Web browsers, however, can access only a small fraction of those characters. Removing these inaccessible features makes the files much smaller, so they download much quicker.
Many of the special characters in our typefaces are activated by turning on the appropriate features in your application. For example, you can select a segment of text and convert it to small caps or to superior letters without having to retype it.
