Text Figures
TEXT FIGURES (also known as NON-LINING, LOWERCASE, OLD STYLE, RANGING, HANGING, MEDIEVAL, BILLING, or ANTIQUE figures or numerals) are numerals typeset with varying heights in a fashion that resembles a typical line of running text, hence the name. They are contrasted with LINING figures (also called TITLING or MODERN figures), which are the same height as upper-case letters. CONTENTS * 1 Design * 2 History * 3 See also * 4 References * 5 Works cited * 6 External links DESIGNIn text figures, the shape and positioning of the numerals vary as those of lowercase letters do. In the most common scheme, 0 , 1 , and 2 are of x-height , having neither ascenders nor descenders; 6 and 8 have ascenders; and 3 , 4 , 5 , 7 , and 9 have descenders

Stylistic Alternate
In metal typesetting, a FONT is a particular size, weight and style of a typeface . Each font was a matched set of type, one piece (called a "sort ") for each glyph , and a typeface consisting of a range of fonts that shared an overall design. In modern usage, with the advent of digital typography , "font" is frequently synonymous with "typeface", although the two terms do not necessarily mean the same thing. In particular, the use of "vector" or "outline" fonts means that different sizes of a typeface can be dynamically generated from one design. Each style may still be in a separate "font file"—for instance, the typeface "Bulmer " may include the fonts "Bulmer roman ", "Bulmer italic ", "Bulmer bold " and "Bulmer extended"—but the term "font" might be applied either to one of these alone or to the whole typeface.

Small Caps
In typography , SMALL CAPITALS (usually abbreviated SMALL CAPS) are lowercase characters typeset with glyphs that resemble uppercase letters ("capitals") but reduced in height and weight, close to the surrounding lowercase (small) letters or text figures . Note that this is technically NOT a case-transformation, but a substitution of glyphs, although the effect is often simulated by case-transformation and scaling. Small caps
Small caps
are used in running text as a form of emphasis that is less dominant than all uppercase text, and as a method of emphasis or distinctiveness for text alongside or instead of italics , or when boldface is inappropriate. For example, the "Text in small caps" appears as Text in small caps in small caps

Italic Type
In typography , ITALIC TYPE is a cursive font based on a stylized form of calligraphic handwriting . Owing to the influence from calligraphy , italics normally slant slightly to the right. Italics are a way to emphasise key points in a printed text, or when quoting a speaker a way to show which words they stressed. One manual of English usage described italics as "the print equivalent of underlining ". The name comes from the fact that calligraphy-inspired typefaces were first designed in Italy
Italy
, to replace documents traditionally written in a handwriting style called chancery hand . Aldus Manutius and Ludovico Arrighi (both between the 15th and 16th centuries) were the main type designers involved in this process at the time. Different glyph shapes from roman type are usually used – another influence from calligraphy – and upper-case letters may have swashes , flourishes inspired by ornate calligraphy

Homoglyph
In orthography and typography , a HOMOGLYPH is one of two or more graphemes , characters , or glyphs with shapes that appear identical or very similar. The designation is also applied to sequences of characters sharing these properties. SYNOGLYPHS are glyphs that look different but mean the same thing. Synoglyphs are also known informally as display variants.The term homograph is sometimes used synonymously with homoglyph, but in the usual linguistic sense, homographs are words that are spelled the same but have different meanings, a property of words, not characters. In 2008, the Unicode Consortium published its Technical Report #36 on a range of issues deriving from the visual similarity of characters both in single scripts, and similarities between characters in different scripts
