This is how I had modified the LaTeX logo a few months ago, to be  
used in a document typeset in Optima (which doesn't include the small  
caps font used for the A in the standard logo). Babel was also used  
in this document. Together with graphics.

The height of the T and of the A, scaled by .8 for the latter, were  
measured and used to move the A vertically such that its top was (in  
theory) aligned with the top of the T. This worked reasonably well,  
but not perfectly, in both upright and italic shape:

With the new version of XeTeX setting glyph metrics, this might  
become better. I'll look into compiling 0.991 when (if) I have time.
