[tex-live] \TeX lowering of letter E

Hi Hartmut,

    seems the lowering of the E in \TeX is somehow inconsistent, e. g. in


    LaTeX it's 0.5em whereas in ltugboat.cls and cwebmac.tex it's 0.424em.

(You mean ex, not em.)  In plain.tex, it's also .5ex.  Which makes me
think it should be .5.  I do not know how the .424 came about.  Robin
(or Barbara), any idea?

In any case, your change to \XeTeX seems like a good idea no matter what.
