A font vendor who shall remain nameless sold me a webfont under the premise that all modern browsers would support switching the old style figures to lining figures without any trouble. Well, by "all modern browsers" then meant Firefox only. Now that I've paid for it, they can't get it to work either.
The font is great and I have no intention to refund it, I just want to swap the OSF glyphs with the lining in the font table. I haven't upgraded FontLab in a few years and I'm wondering how the latest and greatest does with exporting web fonts. I'd like to open the file I downloaded and just move the glyphs around on the table. Anyone have experience with this? Will I lose any hinting or metrics data in the process?
