That's OK ..... when I saw the second [actually, first] copy, I just 
assumed that you wanted to emphasize the request. :-)

XeTeX uses the ATSUI TextLayout APIs to render Unicode text using 
installed fonts; what happens from there on down to the glyph level is 
out of my hands. Please, everyone, feel free to provide input to Apple 
about this. I'll talk to my contacts there about it, but the more they 
hear it from users, the better.
