Thank you, Jonathan. I read somewhere that open type fonts do not function on
Mac. Apart from that, the problem here is, the initial file is not a tex file.
it is a *.mm file. The preprocessor needs to convert this file to a tex file in
order for LaTeX to interpret it. Are you, by any chance, meaning that I follow
an entirely different path? I mean write a normal *.tex file with a call to open
type fonts?

Kind regards
