Thanks for all your help so far. I've basically got everything working.
It's just a matter of figuring out how to lay out my document now, and
being basically new to TeX I've got to start at the beginning. So maybe an
answer to a few quick questions will help point me in the right direction.
Background- Some things I need to do: Put in section dividers, chapter
dividers, headers (with section and chapter info), paragraph footnotes,
table of context, other basic formatting... My setup: I uninstalled all

commands and macros are available? Does XeTeX merely add commands to an
existing system, and all the available macros/etc from that system will
As a side note, I'd like to be able to change the hyphenation (correct
terminology?) for my document. I would like xetex to break up words after
the maqqef and not just wrap by spaces. How would I go about this?
Thanks again for all the help, and for the great program!
