Fontspec's documentation, first: http://archive.cs.uu.nl/mirror/CTAN/ 

It is indeed straightforward: as for me, the only things I have to  
change are related to fonts and encoding. So, my XeLaTeX-specific  
minimal preamble looks like that:

%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode
%!TEX TS-program = xelatex
\usepackage{xltxtra}%loads also fontspec

Compile (command-T) and it's done! :-)
