Netscape Releases Mac Source Code -- Netscape Communications has released the source code to the Macintosh version of the forthcoming Netscape Communicator 5.0. Obviously, the source code is of interest only to developers, but we are curious to see how enterprising developers take advantage of the source code (the code is still governed by license agreements; see the MailBIT "Free Netscape" in TidBITS-414).

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.
