ist easy, i must %)

i prepare the book with many languages samples and primary font (used for
czech only) is adobe utopia. its realy hard to find this font in OTF with
czech support, but i have this my old "czech localisation" by virtual fonts.

with pdflatex i have many problems with some languages, which i can't solve.
only problem with xelatex is missing czech utopia support %)
