I haven't made any comprehensive test. Just a few observations:
. MinionPro, CFF, small caps in the PUA: no warnings, text extraction
gives these PUA code points
. Palatino Linotype, TTF, small caps unencoded, no names in the post
table: warnings from xdvipdfmx, text extraction gives uncode code
points beyond U+FFFF (I haven't checked what these are) nor where they
. Palatino Linotype as above but with an added post table: no warnings,
text extraction seems to give the same result
Anything in particular that would be worth checking?
