At first glance it appears that you are using an AAT font so you must  
use the xdv2pdf driver since xdvipdfmx doesn't support that Apple only  

There may be an appropriate engine file that is presently inactive  
found in ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Inactive/XeTeX/ called xelatex- 
xdv2pdf.engine. Move that file up two directories to ~/Library/TeXShop/ 
Engines/ and use that engine via

%%!TEX TS-program = xelatex-xdv2pdf

at the start of the file. If you are using TeXShop 2.18 and that  
engine file isn't where I said it was remove the ~/Library/TeXShop/ 
Engines/ folder and restart TeXShop to recreate that folder with the  
latest contents. You can then move any additional engine files back  
into the new folder.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
