Much obliged — it worked for me!

Off topic, FWIW, but … sometimes it takes a little while to receive email from people I haven't corresponded with before, so I end up browsing, e.g. http://tug.org/pipermail/tex-live/2013-December/ , in the interest of speed.

I couldn't help noticing just now that some of the messages, e.g. from the previous thread with subject "enquiry regarding Ukrainian …" are not there, e.g. this one (attached).

Is there some sort of incorrect CCing, or, perchance, this is a mail server misbehaviour? Other people in CC received it as I've got replies back … These replies didn't make it across, either …

Once again — many thanks, everybody, and Ulrike in particular, for helping me sort this out!

Robin, David: many thanks for helping me understand the nature of this prob=

All: I got Xetex to work =E2=80=94 thank you [Robin: yes, I ran xelatex! ;-=

Zdenek: It didn't work straight away =E2=80=94 I had to switch from babel t=
o polyglossia,
download some fonts, change encoding, etc. For some reason, none of the xet=
ex examples from the Internets worked on
my system without modifications :). Right now it is clear that some further=
of the source will be required before it looks half-decent (e.g., no {\bf }=
 any more, no triple-dash
and ``'' expansion, table of contents does not work for some reason, etc.) =
and I
might look for better fonts later, but at least the output is sane Ukrainia=
n =E2=80=A6

Thanks again for your kind help,
