10 Trajan and Universal, two examples of a unicase typeface. Casing While our capital letters evolved from the Romans, it wasn’t until the end of the 8th century that anything like lowercase letters were used. Credit for their invention goes to Alcuin of York, Charlemagne’s leading adviser on ecclesiastical and educational aﬀairs, who oversaw the standardization of ecclesiastical texts.

InDesign won’t allow you to apply “faux” bold or italic font styles: There’s no B or I button to make the text heavier or slanted. Instead, you need to choose the italic or bold weights of that typeface from the Font Style menu — or use the shortcuts: Cmd+Shift+I (Ctrl+Shift+I) or Cmd+Shift+B (Ctrl+Shift+B). Numerous terms are used to describe the styles within a typeface. Type that doesn’t slant is referred to as roman. This “normal” style is usually called regular, but in certain typefaces may be called book or medium.
