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.

WeatherTracker 3.0 Adds 7,000 New Cities -- Trexar Technologies has released WeatherTracker 3.0, an update to their dedicated weather client for the Macintosh. WeatherTracker 3.0 provides a full Macintosh interface to Internet weather servers, displaying temperature, barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, current conditions, local forecasts, climatic data, and marine forecasts (for cities near coasts). WeatherTracker 3.0 adds full support for over 7,000 new cities around the world, although cities outside North America may experience periods of limited data due to problems with local collection sites. WeatherTracker 3.0 also now uses HTTP proxies instead of SOCKS proxies. WeatherTracker is $25 shareware; it's a 1 MB download. [ACE]
