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.

Netscape Communicator 4.6 Available -- Netscape Communications has released the English language edition of Netscape Communicator 4.6 for Mac OS. This new release contains unspecified fixes for Netscape Communicator's security and functionality, updated online help, AOL Instant Messenger 2.0, and RealPlayer 5.0.2, but doesn't offer significant feature improvements compared to Netscape Communicator 4.5, nor does it ship with the recently released RealPlayer G2 for Macintosh. (See "Driving the 4.5 Web Browsers" in TidBITS-465 for an overview of the Web browsing features in Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.5 and Netscape Communicator 4.5.)

Netscape Communicator 4.6 requires a PowerPC-based Mac running Mac OS 7.6.1 or later with at least 24 MB of RAM; it's a 13.6 MB download from Netscape's FTP servers. Residents of the U.S. and Canada should be able to download a version with 128-bit encryption from Netscape's Web servers shortly. [GD]
