I usually use PdfTeX. Currently I have to learn XeLaTeX which I am not familiar with. So

  1. Is there any textbook for XeLaTeX?
  2. How to use numerous math fonts in one article?

E.g. use mathrsfs, yfonts, amsmath, dsfont, amssymb, mnsymbol, mathabx together.

It is the primary problem I am facing.

  1. How to use \fam?

Do you already know the documents in doc/xetex & doc/xelatex and hence search for other information? – Speravir Feb 25 '13 at 4:15
@Speravir Well, they have many notes, and I don't know which is suitable. – Popopo Feb 25 '13 at 4:52
Those were 2 questions. Please keep questions separate, so the answers don't turn out tangled. – vonbrand Feb 25 '13 at 5:46

You don't need to use the \fam or the various font packages; if you use XeLaTeX, you can use the package unicode-math to use Unicode math fonts:

\setmainfont{TeX Gyre Pagella}
\setmathfont{Asana Math}
