What families have done that?D. Epar ted said:Well yes, I see the problem we missed... thanks. With traditional Fonts, if 10 foundries supplied individual styles of one family, each one could easily be credited per style.
That's it, Kent. There is a contradiction. That's what I wanted to point out. But the contradiction is not in my statement. The contradiction is in the life. I personally choose the Paratype's decision. Because PT Astra families are designed to be fonts for Slavic and non-Slavic people who use Cyrillic script. And they will be widely distributed as such typefaces. So PT Astra family will design the standard for a shha glyph. Even if they are wrong. I am also a linguist and I know that language never evolves according to the rules we are trying to draw. Often a massive repetition of a language error leads to the formulation of a rule that normalizes it as a norm.Kent Lew said:Stefan — You provide two contradictory viewpoints. On the one hand, the PT Astra family could be viewed as a kind of standard to follow (where the shha has a full ascender, basically a Latin h); then in the next breath you state that it could be more logical to have an x-height ascender, not following the PT standard.
So, unfortunately, that doesn’t provide any practical answer. But thank you for joining the conversation.
