Style of sitelen pona[edit | edit source]

Oz is typeset using the nasin nanpa font. It features variant glyphs, including a previously little-known numeric mute glyph (mute2).[4] Variants of mute and sewi are used to clarify semantic meaning,[1] which, while likely not unheard of before, was an uncommon style compared to speakers preferring a variant glyph in all cases.
