_________________________ THE XLTXTRA PACKAGE v0.5e This package was previous used to provide a number of small features that are useful for XeLaTeX. As of fontspec v2, many of these have now been incorporated into that package. This package therefore no longer does as much as it used to, but is still provided for backwards compatibility. - Loads fontspec automatically. fontspec now loads Ross Moore's xunicode internally. - Loads Andrew Moschou's metalogo package for \XeTeX and \XeLaTeX logos. - Loads the realscripts package to obtain "real" subscript and superscript glyphs in \textsuperscript etc., including in footnotes. - \showhyphens is redefined so it now works to some degree. - Defines the dubiously useful commands \vfrac - for vulgar fractions with fontspec \namedglyph - to access font glyphs by name For more information see the documentation xltxtra.pdf. ______________ Change History v0.5e: Remove the code for subscripts/superscripts and load the realscripts package instead. (No user-level changes.) v0.5d: Remove those parts that have been taken into fontspec v2.0. (No user-level changes.) v0.5c: Update internals for fontspec v2.0. (No user-level changes.) v0.5b: Bug fix for "\LaTeX" when [no-logos] is used. Thanks to Enrico Gregorio for finding this. ______________ Will Robertson 2006-2010 Released under the LaTeX Project Public License

xltxtra – "Extras" for LaTeX users of X∃TeX
The package loads the fixltx2e
package from the LaTeX distribution, and etex.sty from
the e-TeX distribution.
The package then patches the \- (discretionary hyphen command) to use the current hyphen character (which may be different from than the default, which is the character at the ASCII hyphen slot), and loads the realscripts to patch the \textsuperscript command (from the LaTeX kernel) and the \textsubscript command (from the fixltx2e package).
The package is loaded by the fontspec package, so that it should not ordinarily be necessary to load it explicitly.
The package relies on the metalogo package for typesetting the X∃TeX and X∃LaTeX logos.
