Hallo Peter!

I wasn't referring to these examples, they do work fine with the new  
disdvi version. The reason why I was asking for an extended version of  
dvitype (which I knew well from working with DVI files) is the problem  
of an user writing in Russian with a Cyrillic script. One version of  
XeTeX was able to use something like small caps, the other version  
failed. Xdvipdfmx is not exactly showing what it is doing with the  
intermediate XDV file, so I thought of other means, those that could  
show whether the contents of the XDV files is different. (With XeTeX  
there is always a chance that XeTeX and xdvipdfmx pick up different  
font files with different metrics – and features!)

It's probably best to send you these XDV files and their PDF output  
privately again.

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
