OK. Then its "the system" that provides the fonts in a form that they  
can be used! XeTeX needs information about the glyphs it will use,  
xdvipdfmx needs to know the encoding (CMAP file) and the font's file  
on disk to be able to embed a subset in the PDF output.

So, Andrea, you should try to restrict the area of failure. This can  
be done by invoking xelatex on the command line or such with the  
option -no-pdf. This way it will output a .xdv file. Xelatex will not  
tell much (yet), but xdvipdfmx can be turned into verbose modes:

	xdvipdfmx -vv <file>

You'll find some cryptic hints ... It could become less cryptic when  
you could restrict yourself (or your XeTeX file) to use just one  
failing font.

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