@MartinScharrer Good to know that there is a built in safety for that.

comment old style numerals in mhchem equations
I strongly suspect that will fail if you try and use math commands, as you've just defined everything inside it to use textmode.

Right, you'd have to change \mhchemoptions{mathfontcommand=foo} to change what it does in mathmode. Try what I have above.

comment How do I use TrueType Fonts with PDFTeX using otftotfm?
1) Is fontforge free? Part of LaTeX? 2) How are you installing a otf file for use with PDFTeX? I didn't think that was possible? Could I just use all otf files to avoid the issue?

comment old style numerals in mhchem equations
Sorry, can you explain why that will mess up the formula once it gets more complicated? By first instinct is to rename \ce to add the fontfamily commands to it, but I'm opening the mhchem manual now.

comment How do I use TrueType Fonts with PDFTeX using otftotfm?
@Joseph Annoyingly, some of them require fonts that aren't part of LaTeX, which I have a much better chance of finding as a TTF then Type 1. Also I am curious to know how it can be done, as some people have told me that it is now easy with modern tools.

See above. A lot of journal publishers only support PDFTeX, so I'd like everything I do to be compatible with it. Also some people in the chatroom were discussing it, and it seems in the past few years some tools have come out that have automated all the hard parts.

comment How do I use TrueType Fonts with PDFTeX using otftotfm?
I will need to use PDFTeX any time I an publishing, so I'd prefer to stay with it. Also from what I'm told LuaTeX doesn't quite support all of Microtype yet, which I adore.

comment Why does the use of microtype and xfrac lead to a long compile time?
Any idea when this will be up on CTAN?

As a note, \nicefrac causes similar slowdown in my tests, though I didn't use this MWE but a document I'm working on.

comment Disable microtype for a portion of a document
Just a note: nicefrac causes the same problems as xfrac
