From the microtype documentation:

 The microtype package does not work with XETEX.

Does that mean it will break running XETEX, or will i just be ignored?

It only gives a (harmless) warning:

Package microtype Warning: You don't seem to be using pdftex.
(microtype) All micro-typographic features will be disabled.

But chances are high that most "normal" LaTeX documents will not work
with xelatex anyways due to encoding or font selection issues, so I
think unless org-mode aims at explicitely supporting XeTeX out of the
box this whole topic can (and should) be ignored.

I am having problems with microtype, here.  I don't know if it is
happening in all my docs or just the ones I am working with now but
pdf generation fails with the following in the log:

If I comment out the \usepackage{microtype} line then everything works
fine.  I am a casual user of latex so I don't really know what the
comment above about scalable fonts is getting at.  Perhaps I can set
my docs up to do something different in terms of fonts to make this
just work.

Any ideas?

Hi Mark,

Removing microtype is probably the easiest solution. It performs some sophisticated micro-typographic adjustments that are typically found in published material. The LaTeX world got on fine without them for years and the casual LaTeX user can still do so. AFAIK, it is not necessary for the Org-mode LaTeX exporter.

All the best,
