[OS X TeX] From LaTeX to XeTeX (was: Verdana font package?)

All,

I'll be updating this in a few days. Per Will's suggestions, I have 
gone back and tried to fit the fonts into the Berry scheme or stick 
with it as much as possible. I have defined a few new shape options to 
allow access to features in certain fonts. I have also tried to set up 
styles which match a serif, sans serif, and fixed width font that seem 
to work well together. I think the best of these is either the Minion 
Pro style or the Warnock Pro style. The Garamond version shipped with 
Adobe Type Classics is not as feature rich as the version one can buy 
as a stand alone, but considering that one gets 400+ fonts for $99, 
what is there to complain about. Keep your eyes open for an update 
announcement.

My guess is that in the future this work will be rolled into Will's 
project and posted on CTAN.
