That's right ... I wasn't sure which font to use for the Armenian ... 
and I was pretty sure that Adam's use of Times wasn't going to produce 
anything, as well, we don't have Arial Unicode MS. Of course, now that I 
think of it, I could have simply made it: 
\setmainfont[Script=Armenian]{Code2000} and left it at that.

But is there hyphenation in Armenian? Should polyglossia have a 
gloss-armenian.ldf? As it is, there's only a warning, so it doesn't 
prevent compilation.

United in adoration of Jesus,
