The first time an user with an admin role in Mac OS X tries to work  
with "elevated privileges," he or she is warned this way. Is the  
warning so hard to understand and to apply?

This is not an optimum solution ...

Jonathan Kew explained a few times that TeX tries to live without  
hyphenations. There are particular situations in which no hyphenation  
happens, for example when using a monospaced or typewriter font, or  
in tables.

I would have not imagined a different result. Texexec is a script  
particularly used in the world of ConTeXt.

Are you able to produce decent XeTeX output in a Latin script? Maybe  
it helps you when passing this stage to handle a non-Latin script.



There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX.  
We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
