Hi Jan -

Adobe Garamond Pro is an Opentype font yes?  You need to use slightly 
different syntax.  Below is the fd file I use for Caslon Pro.  You 
should be able to modify it to suite your needs (check with TextEdit 
for the right name).  To find out which Opentype features are 
available, I recommend Eddie Kohler's Typetools package (available via 
the i-Installer).  From the command line, say (sans quotes) "otfinfo -f 
AGaramondPro-Regular.otf" and you'll get a nice list.

Enjoy.


\DeclareFontFamily{U}{CaslonPro}{}

\DeclareFontShape{U}{CaslonPro}{m}{n}%
      { <-> "Adobe\space Caslon\space Pro: +kern, +liga, +onum" }{}

\DeclareFontShape{U}{CaslonPro}{m}{it}%
      { <-> "Adobe\space Caslon\space Pro\space Italic: +kern, +liga, 
+onum, +salt" }{}

\DeclareFontShape{U}{CaslonPro}{m}{sc}%
      { <-> "Adobe\space Caslon\space Pro: +kern, +liga, +onum, +smcp" 
}{}

\DeclareFontShape{U}{CaslonPro}{b}{n}%
      { <-> "Adobe\space Caslon\space Pro\space Bold: +kern, +liga, 
+onum" }{}

\DeclareFontShape{U}{CaslonPro}{b}{it}%
      { <-> "Adobe\space Caslon\space Pro\space Bold\space Italic: 
+kern, +liga, +onum" }{}

\DeclareFontShape{U}{CaslonPro}{b}{sc}%
      { <-> "Adobe\space Caslon\space Pro\space Bold: +kern, +liga, 
+onum, +smcp" }{}

\DeclareFontShape{U}{CaslonPro}{bx}{n}{ <->  ssub * CaslonPro/b/n }{}
\DeclareFontShape{U}{CaslonPro}{bx}{it}{ <->  ssub * CaslonPro/b/it }{}
\DeclareFontShape{U}{CaslonPro}{bx}{sc}{ <-> ssub * CaslonPro/b/sc }{}
