Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

I don't mind too much when companies try to reduce abusive usage, but what bugs me is that people who are on the other end of the spectrum - very light usage - always overpay, regardless of their light usage.

I barely use any minutes on my iPhone's plan - I have nearly 3500 rollover minutes stored up in a year of owning an iPhone, and yet I don't see AT&T offering me any "incentives" for being so nice as to not overload their network.

Same thing is aggravating with bandwidth caps. I actually don't mind that Comcast has a 250 GB monthly cap, but I think they should also roll over some percentage (maybe half) of my unused GB each month for 6 to 12 months as a courtesy.

I see the problem. It's an AP story that was linked at the New York Times, which expires AP links. Since this is just a link and an old story, we will leave it standing.
