[XeTeX] Res: Res: small caps not searcheable

So it seems that Adobe fonts in general do not work well with small caps, and maybe with other features. I assume that things improve only in the newest versions, it will probably take some time (years?) until we have quality Open Type fonts widespread.

Thanks for the tests,

The relevant difference is that Myriad Pro doesn't support small caps (smcp).
