Thank you. I have all numbers turning grey now. Regarding the setting of the
font size globally, I have not succeeded. I have tried numbers 8pt to 20pt
just to see the difference, but all without any changes.

Thank you,


Again my document.

\special{papersize=148mm, 210mm}

\usepackage{fontspec} % provides font selecting commands
\usepackage{xunicode} % provides unicode character macros
\usepackage{xltxtra} % provides some fixes/extras

\usepackage{polyglossia} % not sure what this does. My goal is to make a
document in Lao

\newfontfamily\versenumbers{Myriad Pro}




This is a test of the \vnum{234} command.

End of test.
