Dear Bob,

You could try the XeTeX email forum <>.  Your example compiled perfectly on my end, but I changed the mapping file to RomDev since I don't have the Velthius map, and the main font to Times just because my system was having trouble finding IndUni-P even though I have it installed.

All the best,
