I little more of a general question, if you'll mind. I'm trying to 
squeeze some of the more impressive Mac OS X fonts into an XeLaTeX 
interface, and I'm a little unsure what to do with all the weights. For 
example

Helvetica Neue:
   Condensed Bold:  textcb / cbseries
   Condensed Black: textck / ckseries  (???)

Well, if black = k, then in Optima:
   ExtraBlack:      textxk / xkseries

Hoefler Text also has black weights, so I need some letter to 
distinguish them. I seem to remember seeing a table once with a letter 
for the black weight, but I've lost it now. TLC only has light to 
medium to bold.

Any suggestions? Am I even on the right track assigning LaTeX commands 
to all the myriad of permutations I have?

Will
