comment How do I prevent LyX from loading fontspec automatically?
Thank you very much for your response Paul. Your suggestion is certainly a good avenue for me to explore and I think it should work. However, I have one problem, by the time we use "ERT" are we not past the \begin{document} line already (and not in the preamble)?

comment How do I prevent LyX from loading fontspec automatically?
Thanks David for pointing out my confusion between fonspec and fontenc. I pledge my ignorance: I started using the two packages last week. I have mixed them up. How embarassing? But how could one manage to tell LyX not load a package if one wants to load that package with a specific set of options? Thanks, in advance.

comment Getting LyX to Find and Use OpenType Fonts
Thanks scottkosty. Setting preferences as suggested by your answer has made it possible for me to use non-TeX fonts in LyX.

Thanks a lot Bernard. Your response to my question has enabled me to discover the power of the fontspec package. I am making progress with exploration of the capabilities of the package. I am very grateful for the answer.

comment LyX Layout File for the SIAM book class
Thanks Aradnix. I have had a look a the CTAN. I was not able to find a LyX layout file there. I have to search elsewhere to find the layout file if it exists. Thanks once more.

comment Is there an Elsevier LaTeX2e book class?
Thank you very much Christian. I am a bit surprised that Elsevier do not have a LaTeX book class in the public domain, when they do have a LaTeX article class in the public domain. Thanks for the advice. I'll desist from piling up my questions in future.

comment Why does LyX flag the following maths macro definition as an error?
Thanks for all the responses. It works when I use the package mathrsfs. What is interesting is that the problem only occurs when the formal script font is used in a macro definition. When I use the formal script font in the body of a LyX document the error does not occur, even if I don't use the package mathrsfs explicitly. I therefore thought that the same condition would naturally be extended to the context of the use of the LyX maths macro definition facility. I was dead wrong! Thanks.
