Alignment Zones

Is there any reason for or against designating vertical alignment zones with oldstyle figures or small caps that exceed x-height?


  • I don't see a reason to not do it. To only problem is that you run out of zones rather quickly as the zone count is limited.

    In most typeface, small caps are a tad larger than x-height. So that’s a reason to be able to have a distinct alignment zone for them.
