Well, I had figured that solution out, is there no way of substituting
(globally) the numbers of the regular font with another? I know that is
mixing of fonts, which should be avoided generally, but in this case
this solution could be prone to create errors as well, a last minute
change in the text, and suddenly we have both old style figures and
majuscle numbers in the same text.

This will work though.
