Capitals are a set of typographical forms that render text in capital-styled glyphs. Typically, when text is rendered as all capitals, the spacing between letters can appear too tight, and the weight and proportion of the letters too heavy. OpenType supports a number of styling formats for capitals, including small capitals, petite capitals, titling, and capital spacing. These styling formats allow you to control the appearance of capitals.
The following text displays standard capital letters for the Pescadero font, followed by the letters styled as "SmallCaps" and "AllSmallCaps". In this case, the same font size is used for all three words.
Example of capitals
Titling capitals are lighter in weight and proportion and designed to give a more elegant look than normal capitals. Titling capitals are typically used in larger font sizes as headings. The following text displays normal and titling capitals for the Pescadero font. Notice the narrower stem widths of the text on the second line.
Example of normal and titling capitals
Most OpenType fonts expose only a subset of the total OpenType features available.
The following code example shows how to define capitals for the Pescadero font, using properties of the Typography object. When the "SmallCaps" format is used, any leading capital letter is ignored.
<Paragraph FontFamily="Pescadero" FontSize="48"> <Run>CAPITALS</Run> <Run Typography.Capitals="SmallCaps">Capitals</Run> <Run Typography.Capitals="AllSmallCaps">Capitals</Run> </Paragraph>
The following code example shows how to define titling capitals for the Pescadero font, using properties of the Typography object.
