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.

Macworld Big Apple

Macworld Big Apple -- IDG Expo Management, formed with the recent acquisition of MHA Event Management, has announced that future east coast Macworld Expos will be held in New York City rather than in Boston, as has happened since 1984. The first Macworld Expo in New York will take place at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on Manhattan's west side, running from 08-Jul-98 to 10-Jul-98 (the Macworld Expo Professional Conference Program will run from 06-Jul-98 to 08-Jul-98). According to the Boston Globe, the move comes in response to New York City being a bigger Macintosh market, and due to feedback from vendors and show goers for whom the dual-site show in Boston was a logistical nightmare.
