TPTQ Arabic webfont system offers a possibility to apply Small Caps replacing the standard lower case letters with true small capitals. Sometimes people accidentally turn this feature on, which results in seeing all capital text.
Software applications which do not support OpenType layout features (check which software does support OTF features) can only display the default forms of letters and numbers. TPTQ Arabic fonts designed for small sizes usually use Old Style figures, while fonts designed for headlines use Lining figures.
Because web browsers do not support OpenType layout features, we built a system that generates font files on the fly and can apply OpenType features directly to the file. This enables us to support true small caps as well as various styles of numerals.
Yes you can. Our CSS is designed to recognise local fonts, and if the given font is installed locally it is used first. In that case the webfonts are not used, so no bandwidth is consumed.
Unfortunately, web browsers do not support OpenType layout features (yet). But the TPTQ Arabic webfont system generates font files on the fly, and can apply OpenType features directly to the file in the process. This enables us to support true small caps as well as various styles of numerals.
