Close Word Comments Easily

If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.

Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.

Mizer Gets Wiser -- Antimony Software has released Mizer 1.5.3, an update to its drag & drop utility for squeezing bytes out of bloated HTML files. (See "HTML Crunchers Fuel Compression Obsession" in TidBITS-453.) Mizer accomplishes this reduction by eliminating HTML comments, line breaks, and other characters ignored by Web browsers. Version 1.5 introduces several changes to the program, including the display of more information during file processing, an improved parsing engine (which also intelligently trims JavaScript code), and the capability to optimize JPEG images in addition to HTML files. Mizer also adds support for the Appearance Manager and Navigation Services; because of this, Mizer now requires a PowerPC-based system running at least System 7.5.5 with the Appearance Manager. The update is free to registered users (you may need to apply several incremental updates to get the most recent version). Otherwise, Mizer can be purchased online for $70. [JLC]
