Which set of numerals as a default style for a Sanskrit typeface? pic.twitter.com/7PZ5HxFSlw

Anshuman Pandey @anshumanpandey_
@TiroTypeworks 'A' goes with western style, 'B' goes with eastern.
ꯀꯔꯟ @_karan
@tirotypeworks Isn’t this just the North vs. South, Traditional vs. Modern choice, right? I was taught B in school. :)
Tiro Typeworks @TiroTypeworks
@anshumanpandey_ So which for default, in a Sanskrit specific font?
Tiro Typeworks @TiroTypeworks
@_karan Yes. Lambert calls A 'Bombay' and B 'Hindi'. But in modern typography, A seems to have become the default for modern languages. ...
ꯀꯔꯟ @_karan
@TiroTypeworks One of those cases where computers have adopted a default because they need one, but it doesn't reflect real-world usage.
Anshuman Pandey @anshumanpandey_
@TiroTypeworks Default depends upon which style the font is based on. If font uses अ, then set 'A'. If the अ is the 3-pronged प, then 'B'.
Anshuman Pandey @anshumanpandey_
@TiroTypeworks To be sure, in set 'A' the १ often has a straight tail, instead of the left-ward hooking style.
Anshuman Pandey @anshumanpandey_
@TiroTypeworks And in set 'B' the ६ often has a short top-hook. But these are quite traditional forms.

「3-pronged प」形のअの実例は McDonell の辞書 http://www.sanskrit-lexicon.uni-koeln.de/scans/MDScan/index.php?sfx=jpg や荻原雲来「実習梵語学」http://www.manduuka.net/sanskrit/ogi/index.cgi?doc=34ch で見ることができます。後者の数字表にはtop-hookつきの६(「非常に伝統的な」形)も出てきます。

@anshumanpandey_ @TiroTypeworks Funnily enough, I've mostly seen the straight-tailed १ associated with B thus far. :)
Tiro Typeworks @TiroTypeworks
@anshumanpandey_ I associate those two forms with Nepali, so presumably they're the north northern preference?
Anshuman Pandey @anshumanpandey_
@TiroTypeworks Nepali style prefs are a bit diff than the northern style, but they seem to be quite standard, eg. the form of झ.
Tiro Typeworks @TiroTypeworks
@anshumanpandey_ I was talking specifically about the numerals, particularly the third form of nine you mentioned.
Anshuman Pandey @anshumanpandey_
@TiroTypeworks That 3rd form of ९ is quite common in the 'Calcutta' style. Basically ८ with a top-hook, to match that which occurs with ६.
やはりVariation Selectorで区別したい、という話
Anshuman Pandey @anshumanpandey_
@TiroTypeworks Standardized variants need to be defined for Devanagari. Already have a proposal in the works. Will submit for February UTC.
Tiro Typeworks @TiroTypeworks
@anshumanpandey_ Documented certainly. A standardized mechanism is a trickier proposition. Not sure where it best belongs.
Anshuman Pandey @anshumanpandey_
@TiroTypeworks Variant selectors. But then there is no way to control idiosyncratic usage of variants. Then again, random usage is attested!
Tiro Typeworks @TiroTypeworks
@anshumanpandey_ ...it really only makes sense if this display preference is something that needs to be preserved at the plain text level.
Anshuman Pandey @anshumanpandey_
@TiroTypeworks I understand your reservations re: variant selectors. They are holistically unfeasible. My tweet was a bit tongue in cheek.
Tiro Typeworks @TiroTypeworks
@anshumanpandey_ Oh great. Make me type all that and then tell me that you weren't being serious. That deserves #randomemoji 🚏
Anshuman Pandey @anshumanpandey_
@TiroTypeworks Seriously, stylistic sets are the way forward. It would be beautiful to use 1 font and get western and eastern styles.
Tiro Typeworks @TiroTypeworks
@anshumanpandey_ Careful. Stylistic Set in OTL has a specific meaning and some unavoidable implications, one of which is that they're...
