Going to Macworld Expo? Don't forget to bring along the latest Newtonware offering by Bill Kearney <firstname.lastname@example.org>, a $5 shareware guide to all the exhibitors on the two show floors. You can view by exhibitor name or booth number, there are checkboxes to record which you've visited, and each entry has a notes field where you can jot your own comments. If you pay for the guide, you will receive an export utility to convert your exhibitor list into Names entries. Look via FTP on <newton.uiowa.edu>. [MHA]
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.
