comment Why can't we use a \define'd value as a parameter to \switchtobodyfont[…]?
Can you point me to a reference for the \protected primitive? I don't see it at tug.org/utilities/plain/cseq.html#p-ai

Thanks, this is very helpful. Can you give an example of when lack of expansion is the right thing to do? I think that will help me understand the contrast with \switchtobodyfont[...], which requires the content to be expanded.

@phg: ok. I've been reading that wiki page section (which sounds like the title of a Charles Willams novel), but the quirk described there, namely the limitation that only integer sizes are reliable, doesn't seem to apply to this case. I don't understand how to tell that \switchtobodyfont needs to expand content and something else doesn't. But maybe I just need to avoid \define.

Thank you for this helpful answer. Point of clarification: when you say "mkiv-style arguments", does that mean named arguments, like #optional in your example? Do you have a reference for where I can read more about those?

OK, those folders may be specific to LuaLaTeX. See comment discussion with Ulrike.

comment How do I get a list of all available fonts for luaotfload?
@UlrikeFischer: Thanks for your response. Running luaotfload-tool on the command line gives me "command not found". I guess that's because I only have the ConTeXt scheme installed, not LaTeX. I just looked for names.tma, and found one under ~/.texlive2013. Will let you know how that goes!

comment How do I get a list of all available fonts for luaotfload?
@UlrikeFischer: I compiled a ConTeXt LuaTeX document that attempts to access fonts (using the Simplefonts module). Does that qualify? Can I just run luaotfload-tool -u by hand? I tried, but can't find such a file...

@UlrikeFischer: Thanks, but I don't see that file either, neither on Windows nor on Linux.

In TeX Live 2013, I can't find a file otfl-names.lua, in Windows or Linux. The luatex-cache folder contains context, and nothing else. Maybe that file only exists for LuaLaTeX?

comment bug? unwanted gap in 2nd columnset
doed, thanks for looking into the problem. I will use a solution like this if we have to. I don't think that using an abstraction layer (like ConTeXt's bodyfont, with its semiautomatic linespace adjustment) and then defeating it (by setting \baselineskip manually) is keeping it as simple as we ideally could. But I'll definitely keep this option in mind.
