oldstyle figures & lining figures
oldstyle figures have varying heights and are similar to lowercase characters and are the default figures in argesta font. lining figures are numerals which share a common height and fit better with all-cap text.
standard, discretionary ligatures & stylistic alternates
a ligature is a single glyph created from the fusion of two or more letterforms. standard ligatures purpose is to make certain letter parts that tend to knock up against each other more attractive or less confused. discretionary ligatures are more decorative and heir calligraphic appearance can make them feel ornamental. argesta offers several alternative characters that allows to give another appearance for the look of the selected characters.
when all-caps styling is applied, numerals and punctuation marks will be replaced with variants that align better with the capital letters.
