xetex - extended TeX with native support for Unicode, OpenType, system fonts
) is a TeX engine with native support for Unicode,
OpenType, and system-installed fonts, using third-party libraries (such
as ICU, HarfBuzz, and Freetype). It was developed by Jonathan Kew for SIL.
XeTeX includes the e-TeX extensions and many extensions from pdfTeX,
sometimes with different primitive names.
XeTeX is now released as part of TeX Live <https://tug.org/texlive>.
XeTeX's handling of its command-line arguments is similar to
that of the other TeX programs in the Web2C implementation.
