Case sensitive

EN: Case sensitive

Tipografie si design

The position of a number of punctuation marks like hyphens, brackets, slashes etc. is centered on the x-height of the lowercase letters. Fonts with case-sensitive punctuation also have slightly raised alternates of these characters that are centered on the cap height (the height of the capital). When case-sensitive forms are built-in as OpenType features, certain (older) operating systems and applications will not be able to access them.
