Hi, thanks for the suggestions.

Minion Math does look great, i'm looking forward to its release.
In the meantime, I'm looking for any other option to Computer Modern.
The package Euler seems to work for me, however I would like to try
fourier and mathpple (I assume that's what was meant by "Palatino"?).
Is it possible to get these to work with XeTeX?

Asana looks promising, but again I'm not clear how/whether it is
possible to use them in XeTeX.

Many thanks,

baptiste
