I am using the Computer Modern Unicode Bright font, in the OpenType version (see http://cm-unicode.sourceforge.net or http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/cm-unicode) in a XeLaTeX-compiled document. I am loading the font by means of the
I am generally pleased with the results, except for one thing, there seems to be a slight unevenness in the height of the numerals:

Notice that the 4, 5 and 7 do not reach the same height as the other numerals. Also, the 1, 2, 4 and 7 are floating slightly above the baseline. Especially the lower height of the 5's and 7's is noticeble in my document, or at least it is in the pdf on my screen (without much zooming in), I have yet to test if it is really visible when printed.
So my question is, can the height of specific glyphs/numerals be slightly stretched somehow? And is there some way to "pull down" certain glyphs towards the baseline? Preferably with some
fontspec or XeTeX magic and without editing the actual font. Or should I just ignore this and move on with my thesis? :-)
