I am using the XeTeX engine in order to compile a document based on a class of my own, and the package
fontspec to select the face families and features. Though this is not relevant for my question, just with the aim to be more concrete, let me say that for the sans face I am using Formata (from Adobe). This family comes in different .otf files, with the root name Formata, in such a way that the *-Regular file (and *-Light as well, this being just about weight series) includes only the "non-expert" types, small caps and text figures being included in files *-RegularSC and even another, *-RegularExpert.
I have no problem about small caps thanks to the
SmallCapsFont, but I'd like to have text figures as my default selection for numerals. Of course I have
Numbers=OldStyle set in my
\defaultfontfeatures, but this won't do. Is there a way that I can get to the numerals in the "expert" files without having to switch through
Moreover, the Formata family includes a condensed face in a file *-Condensed (together with all shapes and weight series). Is there a switch to have this loaded without having to resort to
Well, my priority is on the numerals-related question, but just to not open another post, I thought the latter would be appropriate here, too.
