Type an em-dash on an iPhone

Typography and punctuation geeks rejoice! It's easy to type an em-dash on the iPhone's or iPod touch's virtual keyboard. To do so, tap the .?123 key to switch to the numeric keypad. Then touch and hold on the Hyphen key to reveal a pop-up strip showing an em-dash. Slide to the em-dash and release your finger.

Note that this basic trick works with many other keys on the virtual keyboard.

CyberStudio 3 Goes Live

CyberStudio 3 Goes Live -- As the Web design industry evolves, companies offering Web page creation tools are discovering that designers want to build sites with WYSIWYG editors - and they also want to manipulate the resulting code by hand. GoLive's CyberStudio 3, released last week, delivers both approaches and more (see Tonya Engst's "Spinning the Web Part 4: CyberStudio" in TidBITS-387). While building pages graphically, users can control how the HTML is formatted, add interactivity using pre-built JavaScript Actions, control Cascading Style Sheets and Dynamic HTML (DHTML) effects, and manage all of the assets of complex sites. GoLive CyberStudio 3 Professional Edition is available at an introductory price of $299 (normal price is $549). Owners of CyberStudio 2 can upgrade electronically for free if the product was bought after 01-Jan-98; customers who purchased any version prior to 01-Jan-98 can upgrade electronically for $99. A 30-day trial version can be downloaded (8.7 MB) or delivered on CD-ROM. [JLC]
