Special 30 Percent Off Coupon for PopChar Purchasers -- For those font fans thinking about picking up copies of Sharon Zardetto Aker's "Take Control of Fonts in Mac OS X" and "Take Control of Font Problems in Mac OS X", you'll receive a coupon worth 30 percent off your next Take Control order when you purchase a new copy ($30) or upgrade renewal ($15) of Ergonis Software's just-released PopChar X 3.0. For those who haven't used PopChar over its long history, it's an ever-present utility that helps you quickly find special characters and enter them into your current document. That was useful enough in the old days for working with dingbat fonts, but it's even more helpful with today's character-rich Unicode fonts whose characters you might want to use, for instance, as HTML entities in a Web page.
