Most fonts have ascii digits (and some other glyphs often used with
them) designed to be monowidth, even when the rest of the font is
proportional.  This is to ensure that columns of digits line up well.

Some fonts – Adobe’s more complete families are among the examples –
contain (opentype) features which enable proportional digits.  In
opentype, those features would be in the GSUB table.  ttx decodes
GSUB well enough that it should be easy to understand.
