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.

Xanadu Addresses

Send Article to a Friend

It seems that the Xanadu special issue we put out last week was quite a hit. However, at the time we didn't have complete contact information. We have gotten some more names and addresses and even email addresses. So if you read our article and wanted to know more, write to Xanadu and ask for more information. They have several brochures on the Xanadu Server in particular. [insert our standard plug about mentioning TidBITS when you contact them :-) ]
