    Typography.CapitalSpacing="True"
    Typography.CaseSensitiveForms="True"
    Typography.ContextualAlternates="False"
    Typography.ContextualLigatures="False"
    Typography.DiscretionaryLigatures="True"
    Typography.EastAsianExpertForms="True"
    Typography.EastAsianLanguage="Traditional"
    Typography.EastAsianWidths="Proportional"
    Typography.Fraction="Stacked"
    Typography.HistoricalForms="True"
    Typography.HistoricalLigatures="True"
    Typography.Kerning="False"
    Typography.MathematicalGreek="True"
    Typography.NumeralAlignment="Proportional"
    Typography.NumeralStyle="OldStyle"
    Typography.SlashedZero="True"
    Typography.StandardLigatures="False"
    Typography.Variants="Ruby"
  >
    <Paragraph Background="GhostWhite">
      This FlowDocument has numerous typography variations applied.
    </Paragraph>
  </FlowDocument>
</FlowDocumentReader>

The following example shows how to set various aspects of the Typography property programmatically.

FlowDocument flowDoc = new FlowDocument(new Paragraph(new Run("A bit of text content...")));

// Change various default typography variations.
flowDoc.Typography.Capitals               = FontCapitals.SmallCaps;
flowDoc.Typography.CapitalSpacing         = true;
flowDoc.Typography.CaseSensitiveForms     = true;
flowDoc.Typography.ContextualAlternates   = false;
flowDoc.Typography.ContextualLigatures    = false;
flowDoc.Typography.DiscretionaryLigatures = true;
flowDoc.Typography.EastAsianExpertForms   = true;
flowDoc.Typography.EastAsianLanguage      = FontEastAsianLanguage.Traditional;
flowDoc.Typography.EastAsianWidths        = FontEastAsianWidths.Proportional;
flowDoc.Typography.Fraction               = FontFraction.Stacked;
flowDoc.Typography.HistoricalForms        = true;
flowDoc.Typography.HistoricalLigatures    = true;
flowDoc.Typography.Kerning                = false;
flowDoc.Typography.MathematicalGreek      = true;
flowDoc.Typography.NumeralAlignment       = FontNumeralAlignment.Proportional;
flowDoc.Typography.NumeralStyle           = FontNumeralStyle.OldStyle;
flowDoc.Typography.SlashedZero            = true;
flowDoc.Typography.StandardLigatures      = false;
