This picks the euler font for maths. That is a somewhat informal  
looking math font that does work with XeLaTeX. If you use nothing  
you'll get maths in Computer Modern. It is also possible to use the  
Lucida New Math fonts (if you have them) with the line


with reasonable success with several text fonts. I think folks will  
agree that the state of maths in Xe(La)TeX is fairly primitive and a  
difficult problem to solve.

Good Luck,
