My typeface has standard ligatures, stylistic alternates, and swashes. I will be selling the font and I want it to be as commercially viable as possible, and as useable as possible to potential buyers. So I am wondering if I should add Private Use Area codes to those mentioned glyphs?
Two arguments I've seen/received—I value both sides of the argument I received in the past, but because they are different, I'm trying to figure out what may be best:
So it seems safer, more commercially viable to indeed give those glyphs PUA codes… but perhaps the more “pure” practice is to leave unencoded.
I would appreciate any thoughts.
