ClarisWorks Easter Egg - Where the Wild Things Are

1. Go into a new ClarisWorks word processing document.
2. Hit OPTION+U
3. Hit SHIFT+Y
4. This should give you a sort of Y-looking thing with two dots over the top.
5. Put the font to Geneva
If you change the size around, the bunny will change into a sheep and a computer. It depends on the zoom too, I've found. If anyone at all has an explanation for this, email me. I couldn't even figure out how to make the bunny appear for around 3 months (the way I found it was by opening some other document).

This has nothing to do with Claris Works, actually - it's a property of the Geneva font. It'll work in SimpleText, too, or any other word processor. Because capital-Y-with-an-umlaut is such a useless character (no language I can think of actually uses it), whoever designed the font had a bit of fun with it.

I think they got rid of the sheep and lamb after some system change. I remember when it worked and it doesnt anymore.

I've tried this on my iMac with every word processing program I have, and it does not work.

This is not working on my PowerBook, and I have no idea why. It sounds like it should, but it doesn't.
