Great fonts (typefaces) with oldstyle figures?

Asked by RedMosquitoMM (531 points ) December 15th, 2009

I’m looking for free fonts with oldstyle figures (where the numbers sit above or below the baseline). Clean fonts that would be used on documents like a resume, thesis, or simple print layout would be best.

@Cat4thCB Actually, I was looking for fonts with characters that extend below or below the base line. Good free ones are remarkably hard to find. Thanks though!
