This is not one of the polished sanserifs. Grotext preserves a human touch. And history. While most contemporary typefaces assimilate uppercase and lowercase, Grotext emphasizes the difference between them. Its uppercase are wide and of classical proportions. Its lowercase are narrow and make it a space-saver. This is reminiscent of blackletter lowercase combined with uncial uppercase forms.
Grotext’s long ascenders and descenders make for elegant proportions. At times, a more compact look is more appropriate, though, as is getting away with slightly less leading. Grotext No 2 comes with shorter ascenders and descenders which help you achieve right this:
My favorite use of it? In the book Electric Trees designed by Ornan Rotem.

Features

Besides having standard OpenType Layout features, Grotext can change its appearance with help of four stylistic set features. Alternates of a g h m n u give it a more robust character. Alternate schoolbook a d g l allow text to look simplified and more technical.
Under the hood, Grotext premières automatic spacing of uppercase letters in all-caps context.
Like most fonts from KLTF, Grotext offers wider spacing of punctuation marks via the ‘Stylistic Set 20’ feature.

As to OTF for Print, not all operating systems and applications support OpenType Layout features and kerning equally well, if at all. As to WOFF for Web, only more recent browser versions support OpenType Layout features, via CSS font-feature-settings.
