Look in the LaTeX Companion: there is a whole chapter on fonts and  
how to set them up (in my first edition it is chapter 7). However  
these two commands are there bacause the hoefler you are using is  
seen as using a non standard encoding (U) and because you need to  
tell LaTeX that you are using hoefler as the default when typing text...
