I wonder how much time the TeX code for fontspec 1.9 consumes at this 
mature state ... What is the minimum number of GHz?

On the first page you write Postscript. I think the proper name is 
still PostScript.

You don't mention how long or far \addfontfeatures last. Are they 
automatically switched off when you change for example from roman face 
to sans serif? Or are they added at once to all fonts as defined in the 

In section 5.2 the second sentence should start with 'They.' And: do 
you really mean 'non-Western?' I know of ligatures only in Latin, 
Greek, Cyrillic, and Arabic scripts ... in contrast to CJK.

Second paragraph of section 5.3 wants 'once' instead of 'one', near 
footnote #7. With former discussion of \newfontinstance you probably 
mean your earlier article?

First paragraph of section 5.6 needs 'capabilities' instead of the 
ancient people of 'capabilites.'

Is the first sentence of section 6.2 correct English?

Making a record in the log of the available features of a selected font 
is a splendid idea!

Which TeX format did you choose to write the article? How can the 
article be integrated into TUGboat? Including micro-typographic 
features too ...
