Sometimes, the font size in incoming mails is really small. And I don’t get it changed by the Pref settings. But this one seems to work:

Very interesting website, where one can search for alternatives for specific software products. Type in ArcGIS, and one gets a full load of alternative software packages.
Interesting solution to a problem… here.
a. Use the Symbol font. It has several parts of curly and straight braces and parentheses, designed to stack upon eachother with zero extra leading (or slightly less, if you want a smaller brace).
b. Put these into an Anchored object, anchored somewhere at an appropriate place, so its frame will always keep the same relative position to its text.
c. Well, it oughta look like this. On the left: a frame with three parts of a curly brace. In the middle: some random math. The top line “contains” the anchored object, as can be seen by the ¥ sign. On the right, the anchored object itself, positioned relatively to its anchor.

Need to debug AJAX? Beside some tips I found on the Net, here is one I found particularly useful, at least in my current case. Just use a
tail -f /private/var/log/apache2/access_log

which displays the latest log entries… which can help to solve some major issues.
Adobe® kuler is an online community where you can explore, create, and share color themes. The color themes in kuler are contributed by its users, many of them designers or in the creative business. You can share with the community your own chromatic ingenuity, too.
Lithoglyph’s Mondrianum enables Mac applications to leverage the resources of the kuler community. Once installed, Mondrianum acts like a built-in, system-wide color picker, available in any Mac application that supports this feature of Mac OS X. Apple’s own iWork™ and iLife® suites, Google Sketchup™, Adobe® Photoshop®, and renowned applications like Coda, CSSEdit, and many more, all work well with Mondrianum.
