This property gets or sets a value on the object that owns a Typography property, which is the only way to access a Typography class instance. In addition, this property supports an attached property usage so that it can be set on text-containing objects in XAML.
Variants are similar to superscript or subscript font forms. It is possible for a font form to contain differing glyph sets between superscript and the ordinal form, or between subscript and inferior forms. The property allows you to set superscript and subscript values for an OpenType font.
The following text displays superscripts for the Palatino Linotype font.
The following code example shows how to define superscripts for the Palatino Linotype font, using the property.
The following text displays subscripts for the Palatino Linotype font.
The following code example shows how to define subscripts for the Palatino Linotype font, using the property.
Fonts that do not support variants may have an algorithmic approximation of the font form.
