[OS X TeX] XeLaTeX, fontspec and Latin Modern fonts: It doesn't seem to work

Hello everybody,

I am doing my first steps with XeTeX-XeLaTeX (coming from the latter  
TeXLive 2007, installed with MacTeX), with this document (saved in  
UT8-Unicode encoding of course) typesetted with TeXShop 2.10beta8:

\usepackage{fontspec}% to use the Latin Modern fonts by default

As I said, it doesn't work. The world "what?" is replaced in the pdf  
file by some horrible letters, and the console tells me:

This is XeTeXk, Version 3.141592-2.2-0.996 (Web2C 7.5.6)

I don't how to switch to the xdvipdfmx driver with TeXShop! And I  
precise that the open type version of the Latin Modern fonts are  
installed, both in "/Library/fonts/Latin Modern" and also in "/usr/ 

An idea on where the problem lies?

Thanks in advance,
