Howdy,

Specifically use

\usepackage{fontspec,xunicode,xltxtra}
\defaultfontfeatures{Mapping=tex-text}
\setromanfont{Hoefler Text}
\setsansfont{Optima}
\setmonofont{Monaco}

for the Fonts section of your preamble. This is not meant to look good
but rather to standardize on fonts that I know work at this end.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
