I don't think there's a big enough XeTeX community at present to  
justify a Wiki. It would be better off collaborating on some decent  
documentation, typeset directly with XeTeX. I'd love to volunteer for  
the task of organising such a thing, but I'm a bit swamped.

CTAN will happily host anything TeX related. I suggest if anyone  
actually gets the inclination to write a "howto" for *anything* XeTeX  
related, they either write a PracTeX article about it if it's direct,  
or otherwise write a longer document with reference material that can  
be kept at CTAN (or even sil.org, for that matter).

Jonathan's "xetex-notes" provide an ideal starting point to flesh out  
more complete documentation. I'm sure he would be happy to accept  
additional sections on material he hasn't had time to cover. (I hope  
you don't mind me putting words in your mouth, Jonathan!) There's  
certainly enough people on the list to provide a cursory factual/ 
copyediting proof read for extra material.

Ross -- I've on occasion had the desire to go through xunicode.sty  
and turn it into a "proper" LaTeX package as a documented .dtx file,  
partly to better understand everything it's doing. What are your  
thoughts on the matter? Would you object to me doing something like  
that in the future?
