When I compile the file test.tex :




Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a category and consider the
set of morphisms $hom_{\mathcal{C}} (X,Y)$, for objects $X,Y \in  


with xelatex, both C's look nice.
When I do
xelatex -no-pdf test.tex
xdvipdfmx -p letter -q -E test.xdv

the first C looks fine, but not the second one.

Same if use latex instead of xelatex.

So I guess this is a xdvipdfmx-issue , independent of XeTeX ?
