Hightower font family


Designed by Tobias Frere-Jones in 1994

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.

The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).
