XeTeX is supposed to work with Unicode encoded fonts. Computer Modern  
Concrete is not of this type. So better leave it – to LaTeX!

Does fc-list list URW Palladio? If not, then you have two options:  
tell XeTeX the path name of the font file or tell libfontconfig where  
this font (file) is. And, BTW, it's not good to mix usual characters  
and quotes in a font name.



How many Microsoft engineers does it take to screw in a light-bulb?
They just redefine "dark" as the new standard.
