here is a sample source
% XeLaTeX can use any Mac OS X font. See the setromanfont command below.
% Input to XeLaTeX is full Unicode, so Unicode characters can be  
typed directly into the source.

% The next lines tell TeXShop to typeset with xelatex, and to open  
and save the source with Unicode encoding.

%!TEX TS-program = xelatex
%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode

%\usepackage{geometry}                % See geometry.pdf to learn the  
layout options. There are lots.
%\geometry{letterpaper}                   % ... or a4paper or a5paper  
or ...
%\geometry{landscape}                % Activate for for rotated page  
%\usepackage[parfill]{parskip}    % Activate to begin paragraphs with  
an empty line rather than an indent

% Will Robertson's fontspec.sty can be used to simplify font choices.
% To experiment, open /Applications/Font Book to examine the fonts  
provided on Mac OS X,
% and change "Hoefler Text" to any of these choices.

I have baseline problems in Acrobat.


The problem is the display in Acrobat Reader (typically at 100%).
