Hi Wolfgang,

it seems that some fonts need script=latn in \definefontfeature.
(i copied and pasted from font-ini.tex)

So your file works here:

--------------------------
% engine=luatex

\definefontfeature
  [default]
  [script=latn,liga=yes,kern=yes,tlig=yes,trep=yes]

\definefontfeature
  [smallcaps]
  [script=latn,liga=yes,kern=yes,tlig=yes,trep=yes,smcp=yes]

\definefontfeature
  [oldstyle]
  [script=latn,liga=yes,kern=yes,tlig=yes,trep=yes,onum=yes]

\definefont[pan][file:texgyrepagella-regular*default]
\definefont[pas][file:texgyrepagella-regular*smallcaps]
\definefont[pao][file:texgyrepagella-regular*oldstyle]

\definefont[can][file:CAMBRIA*default]
\definefont[cas][file:CAMBRIA*smallcaps]
\definefont[cao][file:CAMBRIA*oldstyle]

\definefont[con][file:CORBEL*default]
\definefont[cos][file:CORBEL*smallcaps]
\definefont[coo][file:CORBEL*oldstyle]
