# [XeTeX] RotatedGlyphs vs. microtype

Dear all

I wonder if someone can think of a way to make it possible to use microtype and have at the same time one word with rotated glyphs. The minimal example below runs fine unless you uncomment microtype.

I have tried temporarily disabling microtype using
\microtypesetup{protrusion=false,expansion=false}
then switching it on again after the offending rotation, but it does not work. Compilation stops with the message:
! Missing number, treated as zero.
<to be read again>
U

Thanks in advance,
Juan
