I'm going up on the slope of a TeXnician. Currently hacking with XeTeX, because of it's UNICODE and True Type font support.

comment Horizontal braces with XeTeX take too much space
I was thinking using this method for brace fills, but a hbox with a hfill doesn't seem to work.

I'm specifically looking for a plain-[Xe]TeX solution. I did not dive in your solution yet, but I'll check it out when I'm there.

comment XeTeX pstricks larger page size is cropped to A4
Well I tried that, and it almost didn't worked. It worked with -sPAPERSIZE=a3 in the dvipdfmx.cfg file tough. (And A3 is enough.)

env is Unix specific and could provide a short term solution, but I need it for Windows (for convenience)--Do you know how to set a bounding box in plain-TeX?

Btw. It is possible to set an EPS bounding box even from the TeX file, isn't it?

comment XeTeX pstricks larger page size is cropped to A4
This works nice under my Mac. However for some reason set GS_OPTIONS=-sDEFAULTPAPERSIZE=a0 && xetex test does not. (It does not produces any errors.) I see from the MiKTeX's dvipdfmx.cfg file, that it uses mgs instead of rungs. The environment variable would be more comfortable to do, because modifying the config file could risk that it would be reverted with the next upgrade.

@CodeMocker In my case, there is a complete set of styles for plain-TeX that I would like to port to XeTeX for Unicode and TTF support. Beyond that, LaTeX is not suitable in my case.

@Herbert In this example, yes. Changing any of that does not changes that region, and those does not explain the result.

Whoops, "m" was a typo, and meant to be "mm" (but that's beside my problem) The pstricks elements are trimmed to the size of an A4 page aligned to the bottom right. I'm not aware of any other "alternative compilation target," but I'm all ears. I know that at some point XeTeX & pstricks didn't work at all. probably it is still too soon? I'll try my best to clarify my question.

comment Bold Typewriter Type fonts
Actually I don't need the document to be in a fixed DPI, I was only curious on how to manipulate that kind of font generation. But this Latin Modern, if it is really close to Computer Modern, will be perfect for me. Thanks!
