Hi Richard,

Jonathan has answered your question regarding the leading between  
lines; I just wanted to make a quick remark about the commands you're  
using. While there is nothing that should give you errors with this  

> \newcommand{\basetext}{\fontspec{Gentium}\fontsize{12}{14pt} 
> \selectfont}

it would be better in the long run to use


(replace \fonta with a more descriptive name, like \sectionfont or  
This saves a lot of overhead, since the Gentium font processing is  
only performed once. Again, it's unlikely to cause errors for you  
*not* to do this, but better to be safe than sorry, eh?

Best wishes,
