Thanks Ross! The fonts in my Font window (as suggested in your attached image) are actually Mac Fonts,
not TeX/LaTeX fonts. So I'm afraid they are of no help ; I can without difficulty
print whatever character I please in the source file and compile it with
XeLaTeX, but the exotic characters aren't displayed in the PDF, which is not
surprising. The \char command is not better : the minimal example
Here is an exotic character : \char"25E2 or <character written directly here>
does not work, as the PDF does not display the exotic character.
What is missing from my example is a font specification, right? I browsed
http://www.tug.dk/FontCatalogue/ but could not find any indication
of which fonts handle exotic Unicode characters.
On the extremely short file above, compilation with XeLaTeX (in TeXShop) was
around ten times longer a pdflatex compilation on a long .tex file. Is that normal
