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.

That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.
