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.

Apple Releases New iMacs, Lowers eMac Prices

Apple Releases New iMacs, Lowers eMac Prices -- Continuing the push to update its product line for AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth, Apple last week unveiled the latest revisions to its flat-panel iMac line. The new 17-inch iMac starts at $1,800 and boasts a 1 GHz PowerPC G4 and a 133 MHz system bus, 256 MB of DDR SDRAM (expandable to 1 GB), and a 4x SuperDrive (CD-RW/DVD-R), along with slots for an AirPort Extreme card (an extra $100), and an internal Bluetooth module (an extra $50). The 15-inch iMac receives only a speed bump to an 800 MHz PowerPC G4 and a $200 price drop to $1,300. Unfortunately, it's not capable of taking an AirPort Extreme card (though the slower 802.11b AirPort card remains an option) and can use only a USB-based Bluetooth adapter. Simultaneously, Apple announced price cuts - but no new features - for the 17-inch CRT-based eMac, which now costs $1,000 with a Combo drive (CD-RW/DVD-ROM) or $1,300 with a SuperDrive. [ACE]
