Assuming you're using pdftex or tex/dvips and need to continue to do  
so, the most expedient thing is to just use XeLaTeX (there're  
examples and it's specifically shown in the fontspec documentation)  
to make a .pdf and then place that in your document (convert the pdf  
to a .eps using your preferred tool if need be) like any other graphic.

For an extreme view on this sort of thing, some information on  
Zapfino (and a basic xetex example document) you could look at my  
TUG2003 presentation:
