Searching my OS X TeX list mailbox (44902 messages to date!) I realize  
we've been in touch already, and that XeTeX has been mentioned on one  
occasion during these email exchanges in November 2006. Thus all the  
above advice is probably superfluous, as you already now XeTeX. Sorry!

Actually (since you're a past Textures users, from your earlier  
messages), nowadays I'm mostly using Textures for writing documents,  
in spite of its incomplete state, switching to TeXShop for final  
versions (since hyperref doesn't work in Textures currently, and most  
of my documents include hyperlinks). But the fact that no new version  
of Textures has been released since 2.2.0b6 in January makes me a bit  
skeptical about continuous development, again.
