Type Styles

QuarkXPress has 13 character-level styles which can be applied to type. These are applied using icons on the Measurement palette, with the Style menu, or with the Character Attributes dialog box. InDesign has direct equivalents for most of those attributes (see Table 44-1), though you apply some of them differently than in XPress. In addition, InDesign has two character-level attributes—ligatures and no break—which don’t exist in XPress.
