Of course one should remark that typographically, mixing Optima and Adobe
Caslon Pro is fine but *not* so that both typefaces are scaled to have
identical x height. Optima has more ample proportions, is more open, and
the lowercase is naturally larger than Caslon's. Slightly reducing the
point size of Optima when set against Caslon is fine, but not to the
extreme of making the lowercase letters of those typefaces nominally the
same size.
