Thanks @remus; that's actually an exact duplicate, but since it's on another SE site, I'm not sure how to proceed.

comment What is the latest progress in the realm of TeX?
@Harold: XeTeX is an engine. microtype has been made for pdfTeX, which is also an engine. Margin kerning works with XeTeX now, expansion doesn't, but that's bad typography anyway. LaTeX is a format, or in other words, a collection of macros.

comment How to make the character è “work” in PlainTeX?
@Matteo: XeTeX-plain uses the normal plain.tex as base, which defines \font\tensl=cmsl10 for use within \sl. IMHO having the prefix ten in font names can be a little iffy, so I suggest something like \font\slantedbodyfont="Baskerville:slant=.15" and if you want to use \sl for activation, just redefine it with, for example, \def\sl{\slantedbodyfont}. Note that for maths, you'd need to go through some lengthy redefinitions. I have something written for that which I can share if you want to.

You can also have it so that you just input é, and you get é with a Unicode-aware engine such as XeTeX or LuaTeX and a OpenType Font.

comment How can I use times fonts in Plain TeX?
If you can use XeTeX, \font\times="Times" \times (or Times New Roman) or with LuaTeX.
