Yep, sure, that's what I'm doing usually, and it works with XeTeX too. What I
actually wanted to ask is: in addition to the well-known free fonts usable on
any platform with any TeX engine, is there any font provided with OS X which is
particularly worth trying and looks fine with one of the existing free math fonts?

Right, but for now I'd rather not recommend unicode-math to a beginner, it looks
a bit too experimental to me.
