### How can I use LaTeX fonts with fontspec?

Hello,

I know fontenc is used to access fonts like Garamond etc... but since I'm accustomed to using XeLaTeX, I'm stuck with fontspec and this only recognizes a handful of fonts like Computer Modern and the TeX Gyre series, he cannot make use of the others. Am I forced to switch back to pdfLaTeX in order to use them?

\documentclass{book}\usepackage{fontspec}\setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Garamond} \begin{document}blah\end{document}

Thanks
