Thanks, Herb. I assumed that was the case, but the FAQ pages referenced made me wonder.

I'm attaching a copy of the file that gave me the most problems. Compiled with xetex without the tweaking code in the preamble I count  twelve out-of-margin instances. With the tweaks there is only one, and it's a url.

I've discovered the tex gyre family of fonts. Is it possible that using those I would have fewer problems? [I'm interested in them for another reason as well: I compose in Scrivener, export to latex, and format with LyX. Currently with that rough workflow I am not able to compile with latex. Get errors that suggest the file is not UTF8 when it is. This is a LyX problem.]
