________________________ THE XLTXTRA PACKAGE v0.6 This package was previously 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. More recently, other updates to LaTeX2e itself have eliminated some of the workarounds previously included in this package. This package therefore no longer does as much as it used to, but is still provided for backwards compatibility. A summary: - Loads fontspec. - Loads Andrew Moschou's metalogo package for customised \XeTeX and \XeLaTeX logos. - Loads the realscripts package to obtain OpenType-feature subscript and superscript glyphs in \textsuperscript etc., including in footnotes. - \showhyphens is redefined so it now works. - Defines the dubiously useful commands \vfrac - for vulgar fractions using OpenType features \namedglyph - to access font glyphs by name For more information see the documentation xltxtra.pdf. ______________ Change History v0.6: Replace definition of \showhyphens with one that properly replicates the plain TeX definition in behaviour. 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 2006-2016 Released under the LaTeX Project Public License

xltxtra – “Extras” for LaTeX users of XeTeX
This package was previously used to provide a number of features that were useful for typesetting documents with XeLaTeX. Many of those features have now been incorporated into the fontspec package and other packages, but the package persists for backwards compatibility. Nowadays, loading xltxtra will: load the fontspec, metalogo, and realscripts packages; redefine \showhyphens so it works correctly; and define two extra commands: \vfrac and \namedglyph.
