Hi, I'm trying to work out why the characters below are displaying differently in InDesign (current version). They are the same font, weight, size etc but the first one was supplied to me and the second one is what happens when I type it manually using the style guide. It must be obvious, but I'm going type blind looking at it!

The first characters are numbers formatted with “old style figures” and the second set are the normal figures. Some fonts provide for such variants which can be controlled by specifications in the Paragraph Style and overridden with Character Style, and/or manual specification of OpenType features from the top bar in InDesign.
