I see.

However, I'm not aware of big choice of free OTF fonts, while present
LyX has problem when I mix languages - eg. there is no macron accent
(needed for eg- a-macron in Sanskrit transliteration) in latin-2
encoding (needed for Croatian language), so I end up with ugly monsters
on LyX's screen. That's why I'm looking so eagerly at XeTeX to end this
problems of non-US users for ever :-)

Is somebody working in providing some more docs for running XeTeX with
