comment New map file with LaTeX
I didn't, no. I have now re-checked my installation and made sure all of the fonts are in the right place. In the first instance I hadn't followed the manual correctly, but everything's fixed now. Thank you all :)

comment New map file with LaTeX
The fonts are sitting there in my texmf directory. As far as I know they're installed correctly, I'm not sure why latex and pdflatex are having trouble accessing them without the \pdfmapfile command. In that directory, by the way, is where cbgreek-full.map is located

Okay, thanks, how exactly can I do that, do you know? Also, I have the package installed, let me see if loading helps.

Okay, I think I may need a bit of help installing fonts with metafont. I'm using ubuntu and I've tried putting the cmoefont folder in /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/fonts/source/public/ as well as ~/texmf/tex/latex/ and I ran mf on cmoett10.mf as well as mktexmf in both directories, but I can't seem to make fontspec use either font. Furthermore, mf simply produces cmoett10.2062gf and a .log file and mktexmf doesn't seem to produce anything. Do you know how to install the font properly and get it working with XeTeX?

Thanks very much, I've found it :) I'm not quite sure how to install it though, I've run metafont on it, I think, but XeTeX can't seem to find it

comment Middle English Yogh character
Hi :) Well, I'm using the standard Computer Modern font for my transliterations. I'm basically trying to produce a document on Futhorc - the Old English Runic alphabet. For the runes, I do use Junicode, but I want to use Computer Modern, ideally, for the rest of the text and the transliterations. For the sake of constituency, I was hoping to stick with computer modern and was hoping there might be a package like TIPA for the IPA or textgreek for Greek, that would allow me to input the yogh in a computer modern style font.

comment Using TIPA with fontspec
Hmmmm, okay, thank you. So, with the definition of the IPA environment and \textipa{} above: \textipa{\texttt{f@"nEtIks}} produces fǝ n t ks in the default monospace font, whilst: \begin{IPA}\texttt{f@"nEtIks}}\end{IPA} produces fǝˈnɛtɪks with the standard, computer modern font. What should I be using instead?

comment Using TIPA with fontspec
Hmmmmm I thought that, perhaps because, by using \ttfamily I am declaring a new font family - does computer modern (as in cmr) include computer modern's typewriter text font. I'm not actually sure whether the default is teletype, teletype l or typewriter proportional.

comment Using TIPA with fontspec
N.B.: I had to include a slight modification of your original advice: \renewenvironment{IPA}{\fontfamily{cmr}\tipaencoding}{} in order to get the IPA environment to work with \slshape

comment Using TIPA with fontspec
Hi, egreg, thanks very much that works perfectly :) Sadly, however, I have to ask you to extend a little more help. That worked really nicely, but using \textipa{} with fontspec, for some reason, causes the symbols ", E and I not to display. They do display correctly within the IPA environment, i.e. between \begin{IPA}\end{IPA}. Using \begin{IPA}\slshape f@"nEtIks\end{IPA} does work (although \begin{IPA}\textsl{f@"nEtIks}\end{IPA} seems not to. Obviously that doesn't matter much, but I wanted to try typewriter text and, sadly, neither \ttfamily nor \texttt{} seem to work.
