If you install using the Apple Installer package, a ReadMe file is 
shown during the installation process, that you can save to disk. It 
speaks mostly of installation issues.

More informative is the file XeTeX-notes.tex which is part of the 
Sample files archive which you can download from XeTeX's web site 
<http://scripts.sil.org/xetex> (from there, go to the Downloads page 
from the list of XeTeX Pages in the top right corner). It's more or 
less a User's Manual documenting XeTeX's features. The other sample 
files are also very informative and the output is quite impressive. 
Maybe they're included inside the i-Installer package, I haven't 
checked yet.

There's also a dedicated XeTeX mailing list 

Hope this helps,
