Hi Pablo !

Thank you for your reply. It doesn't work, yet : the compilation stops without producing any log file.
For the moment I have two goals : writing this course with a correct and beautiful PDF print and structuring 360 pages with 23 chapters (with greek aristotelian quotations). I am just trying to face the first goal !
I send you privately a sample of what I am trying to do.

Hi Jean-Pierre,

you have to define a sans font after the serif font, such as in:

  \definefontfamily [mainface] [sans] [GFS Neohellenic]

BTW, latest beta versions require force=yes in \definefallbackfamily.

Just out of curiosity, do you plan to post the resulting PDF file online?

I hope it helps,
