Hey Jonathan,

In here you say that if a font supports both OpenType and AAT features, 
OpenType is used by default but it is possible to choose. I haven't 
seen anywhere how to actually do this, and I believe that the Mac OS 
X-bundled Japanese fonts indeed are such fonts (and I'm trying to 
investigate them). I can think of three possibilities:
   1.  I am blind;
   2.  you haven't documented it; or
   3.  you haven't implemented it yet
I would guess #1 on a pessimistic day, #2 after a moment or two's 
thought :)
Can you enlighten me?

Thanks again,

PS Nice read, by the way! (I know I already said I enjoyed it off-list, 
but no harm in repeating myself.)
