comment Accessing figure style (oldstyle or lining) of TrueType fonts
@MarcoB For my application I resorted to editing the font with FontForge, to make lining figures the default (which seems a little too off topic for an answer here). As far as a solution from within Mathematica is concerned, I don't think much more is possible than you showed in your answer.

comment Accessing figure style (oldstyle or lining) of TrueType fonts
@MarcoB That's very nice! I was able to reproduce your result with Minion, but for Aller I could only find small caps figures in the private use Unicode range. Another problem with this approach: I don't know how to automatically replace the default numbers with the respective Unicode characters in e.g. Ticks, where the character strings are not directly accessible straight away. Note: AbsoluteOptions is known to be buggy and does not wuite work as expected to extract the Ticks labels.

I just found out that MaTeX requires Mathematica 10 :-(. Unfortunately, I'm still on version 8. While there is some info on what needs to be done to get MaTeX to work on older versions in this question, I think editing the font files should be less work.

I want to use it for figures only. I will have a closer look at MaTeX, which at first glance looks very promising. Thanks!

That's too bad. Then I probably have to resort to creating my own font files.

comment Given f[1] … f[k], k = 1, 2, 3… how do one find the general function f[n]?
@ShutaoTang I quickly scrambled it together in inkscape, but with some effort it could be done more beautifully in LaTeX.
