I don't think that whether it's Garamond or Hoefler should make any 
difference.

This declaration is for AAT (Apple Advanced Typography) fonts, like 
Hoefler, whereas Garamond, as shipped by Adobe, is, I think, an 
OpenType font. For them, the above syntax does not work. You should try 
instead:

(forget it, as I was looking through my XeTeX list mailbox for a 
possible post documenting this, Jonathan's answer arrived)

Can't say, don't know this class.

I don't think that will work. XeTeX does not use the PostScript 
language: it creates an .xdv file (extended .dvi), then launches behind 
the scene its own converter xdv2pdf producing .pdf output directly.

Hope this helps,
