Is it possible at all to set the Euler Virtual Math fonts (or other post script math fonts) in fontspec using \setmathrm. I want to this, rather than just loading the package, because I would like to use the ScaleLowerCase Option of fontspec. I tried loading eulervm in fontspec with various settings, but without any success.

\setmathfont{Neo Euler} – egreg Mar 11 '12 at 17:37
the option is also Scale=MatchLowercase which you would specify as \setmathfont[Scale=MatchLowercase]{Neo Euler} – ArTourter Mar 11 '12 at 18:45
I know that I can use Neo Euler, but I meant the post script font provided by the eulervm package. – Jörg Mar 11 '12 at 19:34
\usepackage{eulervm} before loading fontspec – Herbert Mar 11 '12 at 19:54
As I said in my question, I ask if it is in principle possible to load post script math fonts with fontspec, because I want to use the MatchLowercase option. I know of unicode math, but the support is still experimental. – Jörg Mar 11 '12 at 20:19

No, fontspec cannot be used to load 'traditional' virtual fonts. The only way to proceed is to first load the virtual font package and then use fontspec for loading the OpenType font(s) you want to use.
