Question is, do you want your eBooks to work in a ALL Readers/apps/programs or do you want them to just work in a minority amount of Reader/apps/program?

It indeed does work, but it also modifies some other letters (for example I get a strange h with a tail).
BTW, the developer hast listed all affected letters in this .pdf file.

This CSS3/OpenType is visual alternates only... they would not be missed at all if the device doesn't support it.

& & & & & &

The swashiness of the ampersand doesn't really matter.

Of course not, it's less than a year old, still relevant, and all the posters are still around.

This is the perennial "Mobi usefulness" question in another form... one day, we'll have to move on.
These OT features are already several years old and every producer, including Adobe, had time enough to adapt. Shall we wait for ever, shall we give up?

I really wish all users of the main platforms ( Kindle, Kobo, android, pocketbook, and so on) could enjoy these features...

Anyway, these are only alternates. The poors of the earth (those stuck with "old" devices) will get a standard display thanks to a gracious fallback allowed by the OT font (common ampersand, standard numbers, standard everything (instead of oldnums, smcp, hlig, etc.)

To come back to the question, nobody knows how to fill-up these damned red brackets above?

Kobo may allow these font features as long as you convert the ePub to KePub. I might have a go and see if they work.

For the time being, after several different tries, it seems that

Code:
font-feature-settings: ss06;
can properly display the alternate ampersand with Calibre at body level.

and to complete it: as the italic font does not have this ss06 stylistic set, I need to use a special span in one more place with
Code:
font-feature-settings: salt;
On the screenshot (supposed to be a XVII th century letter) you can see some OT features
- true small-caps
- alternate ampersands
- hlig with st (3)

One screenshot is from Calibre, the second one from Sigil. The small size glitch in the smcp ligature (Qu) is absent from Sigil, so I assume it could be a Calibre glitch (or a glitch coming from my version of Calibre).

They should work in everything unless it's personal use.
