Hi Mojca,

Here is a place to start ():


I am a bit overwhelmed right now, will try to do something more when  
things get better (including wiki, etc). Someone on the FontForge list got  
Minion Opticals working in Aleph or Omega; I'll see if he would be willing  
to share how he did it.

And please send queries to the aleph list as well. Yes, the traffic is  
low, but it heats up every now and then-)


PS I have a lot of sample files for rl-lr typesetting floating around the  
aleph and old omega lists. Your system should have the omega support files  
(mostly fonts and ocp's), which I do not think come with XeMTeX, though  
the last fpTeX version should have them.
