I'm not sure about this preamble: osxfonts.sty is an example file  
from the XeTeX distribution, in the Samples folder, not a part of the  
texmf tree. It is used in the other sample file LaTeX-font- 
access.ltx, which contains the warning:

%%% NOTE that the osxfonts.sty package used here is a quick-and-dirty  
%%% and should be replaced by Will Robertson's far more extensive  
"fontspec" package
%%% (see http://scripts.sil.org/xetex_related)

I would suggest considering that a XeTeX user has always installed  
the two additional packages fontspec (by Will Robertson) and xunicode  
(by Ross Moore), and hence to use a preamble like:

     \usepackage{color} % for color
     \usepackage{amssymb} % for math symbol
     \usepackage{amsmath} % for math constructs
     \usepackage{fontspec} % for AAT/OT fonts
     \usepackage{xunicode} % for Unicode accents
     \setromanfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Hoefler Text}

I'm cc'ing this message to the XeTeX list, in case people there have  
suggestions on the issue.
