(I'd almost forgotten I'd released that feature of fontspec! The next
version will have ItalicOptions as well...)

This may well be my inept translation of the fonts.
In fact, I am sure that it is. Sorry to mislead you!
Gerben's version might well work correctly but now that I think of it,
you won't have access to the optical sizes automatically without
writing your own .fd file since fontspec can't handle that yet. So I
wouldn't recommend this route, really.

I think that my final advice is to use a proper unicode font instead of
CM. You might like the look of Baskerville, which is included with Mac
OS X (unless it has appeared mysteriously though other means on my
machine).

Regards,
Will
