Yes, where a font works, the weights selected are consistent betwixt  
the two platforms, so it looks like we've got a basis for working on  
a solution for this --- Will Robertson, do you concur?

All of the fonts which I mentioned as not working on the PC under  
W32tex work fine on the Mac _except_ for Bauer Bodoni Std which  
doesn't work on either platform.

Here's the ftxdumperfuser output for the Roman weight:

Akira, thank you for taking the time to compile XeTeX and making it  
available, I really appreciate it --- having the build numbers should  
keep me from hammering your FTP server to check on up-dates.
