Arno, statements like this depress me, because in the last couple of  
years, I have only rarely had complaints about the fontspec manual.  
In general, the complaints are useless to me: "make it better". How  
am I supposed to know what to improve if no-one asks me specific  

For me to improve the manual, I need to hear things like "I tried to  
typeset the example that goes with the document and it worked fine.  
Here's my own document that I tried to do the same thing with and it  
doesn't work."

If you suffer in silence, it doesn't help anybody.

Don't be shy. These forums are SPECIFICALLY so that when you have  
problems, you can ask!

Fonts in XeTeX are easy. If you're having trouble, it's no problem
