thanks for all this. I will put this somewhere for now and work 
through it. I assume that once i'm in XeLaTeX I can 'simply' 
type accents with option keys (etc) and it will read them fine? 
I'm no fluent LaTeXer, i have to talk myself through most of the 
steps each time I mess with something so can't tell at a glance 
whther I've understood this or not!
