To Bruno, Herb, Gerben and everyone else who tried to help:
The author of the microtype package kindly emailed me with some
suggestions, one of which prompted me to look in the log file after
typesetting. Much to my embarrassment, I discovered the following
Package microtype Info: `draft' option active.
(microtype) Disabling all micro-typographic features.
Package microtype Info: Generating PDF output.
I must say that I now feel like a complete idiot. :-) As you can see,
it turns out that I had "draft" set as an option in:
which turns off all microtype features.
All of this could have been avoided had I just RTFM. :-)
All the best,
