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.

CEI 420 Printer

Bravo to CEI Systems, whose new promotion is a flyer promising "Two Tax Time Tips from CEI." When opened, the flyer reveals a photo of the company's CEI 420 printer on one side - and a packet of Extra-Strength Tylenol pain reliever stapled to the other. The CEI 420 printer is a quiet 420 character-per-second dot-matrix impact printer suitable for multi-part forms, including invoices, W-2 and other tax forms, and checks. It is appropriate for uses where inexpensive, fast, high-quantity printing is desired. A Mac-compatible driver is available, and seems to work quite well; the printer is a real speed-demon compared to the elderly ImageWriter II.
