[XeTeX] Palatino and mapping error?

Yes, I was thinking that!  It's like Rolls-Royce etc. - one would use a dash 
in referring to a merger between two separate firms (the BP--Shell 
negotiations etc.) but once they had merged just a hyphen (as with people: 
Maria Meneghini-Callas was hyphenated, not en-dashed!).   Place-names take 
the hyphen:  Bad-Württemberg etc.

Since your problem is solved now: Why do you think you should use an
en-dash in this case? It's neither a »Gedankenstrich« nor an
»Erstreckungsstrich« (two kinds of dashes in german typography), so
one should use a short hyphen (»Bindestrich«) between the two names.
A quick look in some books from Klett-Cotta on my bookshelfs doesn't
show any dashes either.

Just curious,
