I did a very quick test, selecting the XeLaTeX engine, removing the  
last line of the preamble:


and replacing it with

     \setromanfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Trebuchet MS}

then typesetting

     \mathrm{Test}\qquad ax^2+bx+c

I get the proper output but with an incorrect bounding box of width  
212 pt and height 300 pt (says Pages, when dragging-and-dropping the  
formula from LaTeXiT). This is the same aspect ratio as an A4 page,  
which seems to indicate the XeLaTeX output has been resized from A4  
but not actually tailored to its content.
