Stylistic Sets

Some OpenType fonts include stylistic setsalternate glyphs that can be applied one character at a time or to a range of text. If you select a different stylistic set, the glyphs defined in the set are used instead of the font's default glyphs. Using a stylistic set is one way you can apply small caps to a range of text, for example. You can see the glyphs for each stylistic set using the Glyphs palette.
