Sigh... I went back to your original post, changed the fonts used (I  
don't have the Fontina fonts) and, of course, changed the bibliography  
citations and bib file name. It all compiles fine here with

%!TEX TS-program = xelatexmk

and all files are automatically processed. So... now we have to figure  
out what is going on on your system.

Now that you've got a new Engines folder you'll have to activate the  
xelatexmk engine by moving the latexmk engine files from ~/Library/ 
TeXShop/Engines/Inactive/Latexmk/ up to ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ and  
restart TeXShop.

Try using other fonts at first (Hoefler Text is an ok roman font,  
Optima for sans and Monaco for monospaced) and let's see what happens.

Good Luck,
