Summary description:  Macros to change text and mathematics fonts in plain XeTeX

Announcement text:

 The package "font-change-xetex" consists of macros that can be used
 to typeset "plain" XeTeX documents using any OpenType or TrueType font
 installed on the computer system. The macros allow the user to change
 the text mode fonts and some math mode fonts. For any declared font family,
 various font style, weight, and size variants like bold, italics, small caps,
 etc., are available through standard and custom TeX control statements.
 Using the optional argument of the macros, the available XeTeX font
 features and OpenType tags can be accessed.
 Other features of the package include activating and deactivating hanging
 punctuation, and support for special Unicode characters.
 For more information, please refer to the documentation (font-change-xetex.pdf).
