The version I have offers both regular and oldstyle, with the feature 
named "Number Case". The setting name for non-oldstyle varies depending 
on the specific face--Regular requires "Number Case=Upper Case 
Numbers", while Italic wants "Number Case=Uppercase Numbers"!

That one has me puzzled, for now....the "/o" ligature forms in XeTeX, 
but not in TextEdit, and I can't see how to control it. Ugh. I suspect 
it's an AAT table bug of some kind (the feature/selector names are all 
a bit of a mess), but tracking it down is going to be painful.
