All the text is already Unicode, that’s not a problem. The font I’m
using for the body text actually does support IPA, it’s just that I
don’t entirely like its appearance. So I want to switch it out for one
I like. There’s no problem in XeLaTeX for doing this, it’s just in the
TLex UI (and the default HTML) where the %p is still present. In fact,
in the TLex UI I use the same font for IPA stuff and for other text.
So my desire is just for %p to do nothing, just to disappear.
