Then, in NetBITS-004_, NetBITS Editor in Chief Glenn Fleishman looked at ways of stopping spam at the server level. Other topics included a look at how time zones relate to the times displayed in email headers, how to use the Internet to set your computer's clock correctly, and thoughts about purchasing ISDN equipment for a small office.

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.
