I am typesetting books (arts and philosophy) for publishing houses;
books like 300 to 500 pages small A4 size, sometimes (seldom) with
images included in the text, sometimes in non western languages
(that's why I need XeTeX). But always typographically appealing
(that's why I need some speed to be able to "play" with variations,
writing in ConTeXt).
