Hi again Will,
Having a quick look at the first page of the doc fontspec.pdf for your
fontspec package: the XeTeX logo could be made closer to the form it
has in XeTeX-notes.pdf by using Jonathan's def in XeTeX-notes.tex, and
modifying it so that it works in standard LaTeX. Compared with
Jonathan's def:
% Version of the XeTeX logo that doesn't depend on Ǝ being available in
the font
% Requires XeTeX 0.7 or later
\def\reflect#1{{\setbox0=\hbox{#1}\rlap{\kern0.5\wd0
\special{x:gsave}\special{x:scale -1 1}}\box0 \special{x:grestore}}}
\def\XeTeX{\leavevmode
\setbox0=\hbox{X\lower.5ex\hbox{\kern-.15em\reflect{E}}\kern-.1667em
\TeX}%
\dp0=0pt\ht0=0pt\box0 }
this would involve simply invoking the graphics package, and replacing
\reflect by \reflectbox:
\usepackage{graphics}
\def\XeTeX{\leavevmode
\setbox0=\hbox{X\lower.5ex\hbox{\kern-.15em\reflectbox{E}}\kern-.1667em
\TeX}%
\dp0=0pt\ht0=0pt\box0 }
The resulting logo is not as nice as the one in XeTeX-notes.pdf, due to
Hoefler Text being replaced by CM (in particular the slope of the lower
serif in the capital E is not identical to, and aligned with, the
corresponding branches of the capital X), but it already feels more
XeTeX-like.
