Actually, the latter doesn't seem to work, but the former does.

On commenting out the line


and adding

    {<-> "Hoefler\space Text\space Black"}{}

I was finally able to reproduce your output without errors.

I just don't like the fact that, in order to obtain *upright* old style 
numerals, you have to redefine {OML}...{it} to the corresponding 
non-italic version... and what if I need to use both [bold] upright and 
[bold] italic old digits?

Thank you very much for help -and thank you, Bruno, for your tips on 
rich fonts.
