I have been looking for an overview of the stylistic sets for the STIX OTF fonts, but I have only been able to find the documentation for the "LaTeX" fonts which I presume are the Type 1 fonts.

These stylistic sets affect only the roman and bold faces. Compile the following to see their effects: it’s the relevant parts of the feature file (as seen in FontForge) converted into LaTeX tables:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{array,fontspec,longtable}
\setmainfont{STIX}
\begin{document}
\centering
\section{Stylistic Set One}

As you’ll see, ss01 produces upright forms for some mathematical symbols. ss02 makes the line indicating negation upright in some mathematical symbols. The effects of ss03 are more varied: it shortens some mathematical symbols, makes other narrower, makes still others bigger, etc.
