Caroncomb vs caroncomb.alt

What are the community’s thoughts on the use of the caroncomb vs caroncomb.alt.

I’m just using the caroncomb but should I be considering the caroncomb.alt in some cases. What is the protocol here, and how do select the caroncomb.alt (no individual unicode attached)

Example of how I see it being used on Font Testing Page - Latin Version

You don’t need to encode caroncomb.alt, it’s a throwaway component for l, d, t because they need vertical carons. Glyphs should take caroncomb.alt automatically for those composites.

Using caroncomb for those is wrong :slight_smile:

Thanks, super appreciate the details!
