Dear list,

I'm having problems getting old style figures and ligatures with the fbb
font. I'm using Tex live 2014 on OpenBSD 5.9 and context version
2014.05.21 22:04. otfinfo -f fbb-Regular.otf reports that it has onum
and liga, and it works fine with lualatex. I have tried with a
typescript and simplefont (the fbb font is being used in all three
cases); see attached examples. Do you have any suggestions?

% type-fbb.mkiv
\starttypescript [serif] [fbb] [name]
    \definefontsynonym [Serif]       [file:fbb-Regular.otf] [features=default]
    \definefontsynonym [SerifItalic] [file:fbb-Italic.otf] [features=default]

\starttypescript [fbb]
  \definetypeface [fbb] [rm] [serif] [fbb] [default]

% contex-test1.tex

1234567890 ff

% context-test2.tex
\setmainfont[fbb Regular]

1234567890 ff

% lualatex-test.tex

\setmainfont[Numbers=OldStyle,Ligatures=Historic]{fbb Regular}

1234567890 ff

Best regards,
