Lining figures (lf)

EN: Lining figures (lf)

Tipografie si design

Numbers that rest on the baseline, and are usually the same height as capital letters. Lining figures can be tabular or proportional. When the different figure sets are built-in as OpenType features, certain (older) operating systems and applications will only be able to access the default figures, most often the tabular lining figures.
