Thanx Dicl for your sober response.

Basically, that was the intension of my message here.

The problem is that I am not a texnician, not do I know much,
to say anything, about electronic typography. 

I was hoping to get pointers, before I just download the the xetex source and
work through before I could even start to work on replace ASTUI with Code Text.

Furthermore I do not know which compilers are used over at MacTeX as this does matter
in ways which are far to complicates to discuss here.
