I want to give my next typefamily an Oblique (manually perfected, mind you), and an Italic (more cursive-like) counterpart.
SS01 is already taken by some other feature, so I would have to put the obliques/italics in SS02, which is not ideal.
I could have a style called Name Bold, Name Bold Oblique, and one called Name Bold Italic. Are there any known/expected software issues with such a naming scheme? It would also create a total of 21 styles (7 weights) which is maybe a bit annoying.
Alternatively, I could make a subfamily called Name Oblique, that only has the Obliques in it. Or, a family for the Uprights, one for the Italics, and one for the Obliques.
