Dear list members,

Can you explain me the rules for WordSpace (and the effect that, I suppose,
contradicts 5.4 of fontspec manual)?
Is it possible to set different word spacing for different sizes with
SizeFeatures? (I failed).


% -*- tex-command: "xelatex" -*-
\setmainfont{Garamond Premier Pro}

\def\test{\qquad Space: \the\fontdimen2\font;
Stretch: \the\fontdimen3\font;
Shrink: \the\fontdimen4\font\par}

This is a test \test\par
This is a test \test}


{\addfontfeature{WordSpace={1,1,1}} \TEST}
{\addfontfeature{WordSpace=1} \TEST}
