This reminds me.
For the next version of fontspec I want to be more explicit about exact steps that users need to follow about loading fonts in XeTeX with fc-cache under both Linux and Windows. (And obviously analogous instructions for LuaTeX such as required.) As I understand things, it's not entirely automatic and there isn't a good central repository of instructions for doing this.

Only problem is, I've only ever used XeTeX on Mac so I'm kinda unfamiliar with the whole process on other platforms. Would I be able to commission some words from, er, someone :) on how to do this?

Many thanks,
