Hi Sander,

this an extension to my previous reply.

\definesimplefonttypeface enables a typeface, instead of a font. As you
might already know (and I tend to mix) Times Italic and Times Bold are
two different fonts, but the same typeface.

Here is another sample:

\definesimplefonttypeface[mytypeface][TeX Gyre Pagella]
\definesimplefont[myfont][TeX Gyre Pagella]
This is the standard font.

But here comes {\mytypeface another {\em typeface}.}

And here comes {\myfont another {\em font}.}

I guess I should wikify this.

I hope it helps now,
