Following up from the previous post about Pages here on Medium, I want to pay more attention to character styles, this time on iOS. My usual set of character-level formatting definitions is as follows:

– italics
– bold
– small caps
– all caps
– code
– link
– some colour in bold, if needed

In more capable applications, such as Nisus Writer Pro and InDesign, I end up having more italic styles, for different languages, and a no-break style, which can be used at the end of the typesetting tasks, when one wants to hone weird-looking ends of lines…
