What I meant was that, given MS Office 2007 Beta installs only on
Windows, there was no way to use the OpenType fonts that it provides
with XeTeX, on either Mac OS X or Linux. I thought that was what your
post was about. Thanks for the clarifcation.
Actually I was suspecting your message was a troll, something unusual
on this list. Glad to know this is not the case!

Thanks for the link, that looks interesting. I'll have a look at it
when time allows. I must admit that I feel fairly skeptical towards
anything coming from MS, and I have difficulties in believing in
their good will, but I'll try to look at this paper with fresh eyes
and an open mind.
