Dear all,

I'd be much obliged if somebody could tell me how to configure
microtype in combination with a non-standard font. Currently,
I'm trying something along the following lines, but as far as
I can see microtype still cannot find its protrusion list.


\fontspec[ Path            = /home/dongen/.fonts/MyFonts/GaramondPremierPro/FONTS/,
           Extension       = .otf,
           BoldFont        = GaramondPremrPro-Bd,
           ItalicFont      = GaramondPremrPro-It,
           SlantedFont     = GaramondPremrPro-It,
           BoldSlantedFont = GaramondPremrPro-BdIt,
           BoldItalicFont  = GaramondPremrPro-BdIt,
           UprightFont     = GaramondPremrPro]
% Following also doesn't seem to work.
% \DeclareMicrotypeAlias{Garamond Premr Pro}{ugm}
% \DeclareMicrotypeAlias{Garamond Premier Pro}{ugm}
% \DeclareMicrotypeAlias{GaramondPremierPro}{ugm}

   Hello world.

When xelatex-ing this I get:

Any suggestions for solutions would be more than welcome.

Thanks in advance for your help.
