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

    Remove the code for subscripts/superscripts and load the
    realscripts package instead.
    (No user-level changes.)

    Remove those parts that have been taken into fontspec v2.0.
    (No user-level changes.)

    Update internals for fontspec v2.0.
    (No user-level changes.)

    Bug fix for "\LaTeX" when [no-logos] is used.
    Thanks to Enrico Gregorio for finding this.

xltx­tra – "Ex­tras" for LaTeX users of XTeX

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 XTeX and XLaTeX lo­gos.
