Phew - that’s a relief. For a moment I thought that each LaTeX command had subtle undocumented variations depending on the environment. That would make working with TeX even more ‘interesting’ than it is already! :-)

I suppose I’m working on the general principle of using XeTeX stuff in such a way that it won’t require major surgery to pass the files to a non-XeTex system, should the sky fall in and I have to work on another OS. I’m sure that there are clever ways of switching between LaTeX and XeTeX, but at the moment I’m trying to keep things as straightforward as possible.
