Hello,

How can we access the stylistic sets of Zapfino font via CoreText on OSX?

We are sure Zapfino contains the, as in the TextEdit.app, the font options
can be accessed and the Typography tab provides alternatives for stylistic
sets ( around 7-8 of them ).
We can easily access the via regular OpenType fonts by passing "ss01" ...
"ss08" or via passing kStylisticAlternativesType to achieve same result,
although Zapfino does not respond neither to "ss01"..."ss08", nor to
injecting "kStylisticAlternativesType" and kStylisticAltOneOnSelector...
kStylisticAltEightOnSelector.

Is there something has to be done for this specific font?
