[XeTeX] Scheherazade not rendering properly with XeTeX

Thanks, that command did the trick. It ended up that I had a
half-dozen fonts hidden in the Windows fonts directory--created, I
imagine, as I created dragged-and-dropped the font I had created into
the directory. (I don't fully understanding that since I renamed the
font as well as using it.) If anyone has tips on dealing with Windows
Fonts, I would be interested to hear them.

Thanks again,
