Does that mean that it would be enough to say simply


instead of what is in the example:

   \setmainfont[% main font

etc? That seems not to work yet:  I get errors like

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `EU1/LucidaBrightOT.otf(0)/bx/n' undefined
(Font)              using `EU1/LucidaBrightOT.otf(0)/m/n' instead on input line 79.

Would it still be necessary to add

Would the new .fontspec file make it work? I don't see any .fontspec file in the existing configuration.

I would suggest only making it work with the latest versions. There is nothing stopping people from getting TL-14, and (once they know about it), running tlmgr as often as necessary. Making it work with arbitrary combinations of old versions seems like an impossible task.

Many thanks,
