Thanks *VERY* much for clearing this up. This was about my last real
concern about moving forward with XeTeX, so I'm quite comfortable with that
as a platform.
To summarize my impressions:
- I really need the ability to add and specify fonts very easily, and from
what I've learned, XeTeX seems to be preferable to pdfTeX for that.
- I need to add support for right-to-left, vertical, bidi and other writing
- I'd like to have support for micro-typography at some point, and I gather
this has also been added to XeTeX in some fashion.
- LuaTeX seems very promising in features, but is still a work in progress.
