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.

Now that Tonya is writing more articles for TidBITS, we need a way to differentiate who has written what, particularly with MailBITS. From now on, appropriate initials will appear in brackets at the end of the MailBITS, and I'll include myself in bylines. In the past to do so was redundant, but now we have to be more careful to identify the "I" in an article. [ACE]
