Bug Description

Brackets and punctuation are optimised for lowercase, or combinations of upper- and lower-case.

When (using OpenType features selection), the user wishes to set a sequence of text in uppercase, then the <CASE> feature allows shifting the punctuation (mainly brackets, hyphen) upwards so that the "centred" weight is based on that of the capitals, rather than the lowercase.

This is currently being experimented with.
