Typography Out of the Box

Don Box:

As for OpenOffice’s lame typography support, have you tried Microsoft Office 2003. I still have ~$200 left of quota over at the company store…

Hmm. In OSX, It’s built-in; no need for apps to fiddle with typography; it’s all there (my favourite: the Typography palette, especially ligature control), in every Cocoa app, from Text Editor on up. To see it in a full, Word-compatible word processor, see the excellent Nisus Writer Express. If you want to play, I guess I have an old 350Mhz iMac that runs I’m willing to let go cheap…

P.S. Developer docs here, Don.
