How do you make it work then?

I just made a text block in InDesign CS3, set some 11 pt. Garamond  
Premier Pro type, then set some of it to 8pt. and it stayed in the  
Regular font. IME, (except for MMs which worked right) one has to  
switch to the appropriate optical size version by hand.

Nothing comes up for optical size and OpenType fonts in the help menu.
