Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen

When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?

Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.

WorldScript Support in ClarisWorks 4.0

Since making HTML documents is one of my tasks, I was excited to see in TidBITS-283 that ClarisWorks 4.0 was shipping. I immediately purchased the upgrade online from Cyberian Outpost and it came in a few days. Here's what I found: HTML? Yes! WorldScript support? Nah. ClarisWorks 4.0 does have WorldScript preferences, and it did show Japanese text, with trouble. ClarisWorks 4.0 did not calculate the width of 2-byte character codes correctly, so the text didn't select or wrap correctly. This is hardly satisfactory. I expected true WorldScript support like Nisus Writer. We have the "kurarisuwaakusu" (Japanese) version of ClarisWorks, which is a best-seller in Japan, but it's only version 2.0 and the HTML translator doesn't work with it! The HTML translator of ClarisWorks 4.0 is great, but I have to write HTML both in English and Japanese. It's a good thing I have Nisus Writer handy, which can also handle HTML.
