In terms of the basic XeTeX \font command, something like this works 

	\font\txt="Hoefler Text" at 12pt
	\font\fn="Hoefler Text:Vertical Position=Superiors" at 12pt

	This is a test{\fn a} for the footnote{\fn b} markers.


However, I don't know anything about the whole LaTeX font selection 
scheme, so I'm not the person to determine how to tie AAT features in 
with all that.
