Thanks very much. Perhaps I can ask you one other question. The "lucidaot.tex" document (which I can now compile) says in "4.2 Loading Lucida in LaTeX"

  "When specifying OpenType fonts by filename (though not
   with system font lookups), it is currently necessary to
   explicitly (and laboriously) specify the italic, bold,
   and bold italic file names. This will likely be improved
   in a future release of fontspec."

Is there a timeline for when fontspec would get that improvement? Is there a way that I would know when that happens?

With thanks,
