comment Where should drop cap be suitable?
@supercat I rather like the examples as presented. They demonstrate a variety of different approaches, and the professional setter of type should have all these and more at the ready.

comment What to do with small cap initialisms at the start of a sentence?
Please pick up a print version of The Economist and notice that they always use small caps for initialisms and the like. Notice also how attractively NOT IN YOUR FACE that this is, unlike this sentence.

comment Is this typeface intentionally so uneven, or is this some display error?
I’m curious (read: astonished) that you find the first screenshot to be in any fashion appealing. That sample seems to employ justification by wordspacing alone, something I find worse on the eye than ragged-right text with invariant wordspacing. I believe I might go mad reading a book like that. To be readable, it also needs letterspacing and optimally subtle glyph reshaping as well.

comment When should someone use ligatures?
@PhilPerry No, that’s not true. The software should be deciding this for the obligatory ones that will not typeset correctly otherwise.
