If it's noted with slurs, wind instruments (at least all the 
sax player I know) will use the fingering for the printed note
and alter the pitch of the tone by the embouchure. 
If it's noted with a zigzag line (like glissandi sometimes are),
they will use the fingering to play a more or less ;-) cromatic
scale and keep a "normal" embouchure". That's why I'm so keen 
on having zigzag lines for this purpose.
