If you regularly visit our FTP site at <ftp.tidbits.com> for Macintosh Internet software, be aware that we're moving files and directories around. Things may be rather difficult to find for the next week or so. I'll write more about the reorganization once it's complete. [ACE]
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.
