I’m trying to use the Bulgarian characters that are part of the Cyrillic subsetting of the Montserrat font using this CSS rule:
font-feature-settings: "locl" 1;.
What I did so far is:
- Use the Webfont Generator;
- choose the custom subsetting and then Cyrillic from the languages;
- tried with and without the Keep All Features option from the OpenType Features;
- used the generated woff and woff2 files.
- used the
font-feature-settings: "locl" 1;style.
Sadly, I’m still getting the default characters for л, д and г. When I open the font with FontForge to explore the character table I see that the characters I want are included in the generated webfont, but just specifying the font feature settings doesn’t seem to be enough.
The worst thing is that I had the same issue one year ago and I somehow solved it but didn’t document the process at all.
Thanks in advanced,
After trying all sorts of combination in the Webfont Generator I found that the issue wasn’t in the webfont or in the settings set in the CSS, BUT in the html document itself, it was missing a
lang="" attribute in it’s
- No need to self-host a Google font to use the localisation setting;
- the localisation setting is set in the
<html>tag of the HTML document;
- mozilla supports
- I found out that the language specific characters aren’t part of the style subsets (thus self-hosting the font is not required).
ps: This matter still feels very confusing to me…
