The jargon-speak of the week comes in the postscript of a mass mailing from Kate Mitchell, Vice President of Oracle Corporation, about an Oracle seminar. "Implementing an enterprise-wide rightsizing strategy is on the top of everyone's IS agenda - so please register for this seminar today." I'd better run out and get an IS agenda so I can put an enterprise-wide rightsizing strategy on it to keep it from blowing away. I wonder if anyone uses personal-size wrongsizing strategies instead? I'll bet that's what happens if you use FileMaker Pro 2.0 on a Mac 512K.
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.
