In the name of sanity, I simplified the experiment. The font file (OTF) is now in the same directory as the TeX file.

The TeX file:


\font\x="[SabonNextLT-Black]" at 12pt \x

This is fun



The Console output:


This is XeTeX, Version 3.141592-2.2-0.995 (Web2C 7.5.5)

I'm stymied :>}O

I have been updating XeTeX from the svn archive, but used i-Installer for 0.995.

By the way, what is the reference to HoeflerTextOrnaments?



PS The font I used yesterday was an OTF font converted hastily from an LWFN font using FontLab, thus the misleading name.
