Lower case letters (LC) are letters that appear as small letters whose main
body lies between the baseline and waistline. The form of lower case letters
is often altered from that of the cap. LC letters may extend from the line of
ascent to the line of descent as in letters like i, j, k, l, and etc.
Figure 5-18 shows how lower case letters may reach the line of ascent or the
line of descent.
