Georgia font for smaller font sizes

Minion Pro has a "relative" for smaller font sizes-Minion Pro Caption.

Is there is sth analogous for the Georgia font-a version of it specifically for smaller font sizes.

I searched in Typekit but i found nothing.

As a sidenote,what impresses me more is the fact that typekit does not list at all Georgia-a so usual font found in the web today.

How can that be?

Georgia was part of Microsoft's core fonts for the Web package and is preinstalled by default on Apple Macintosh and Windows-based computers.

Re: Georgia font for smaller font sizes

Ok, is there a font, related to Georgia, which is specifically for smaller font sizes in the way Minion Pro Caption is?

Here are some links to Adobe's fonts that feature that optical-sizing business:

I can't say that I'd compare any of these to Georgia; I don't know which features of Georgia you're trying to find elsewhere. Honestly, I hate Georgia whenever I see it so I can't tell you if one of those fonts is "related to Georgia." Depending on which features of Georgia you're looking for in another font, you might find what you need here.

Re: Georgia font for smaller font sizes

Georgia is already optimized for small sizes, at least in Windows browsers. The design was intended for text sizes on screen, and the hinting makes it work pretty well down to quite small sizes.

Miller is a rough analog of Georgia, by the same designer (Matthew Carter), intended for text and display in print. On screen the "text" version would be great for smaller headings, and the "display" version for really large sizes. But Georgia is already the small version.

Re: Georgia font for smaller font sizes

Thanks for the tips and info- i will study them and make a decision.

Of course i just might use Georgia in a smaller scale-most probably.

The intention is to use it in the left column of my site, in a smaller scale, in comparison with Georgia which exists in the central column which it will

be about 2px bigger.

Thanks
