There's more than one way to store Unicode text in a file -- Unicode is 
essentially just a set of numbers associated with characters (e.g., the 
number 120 represents lowercase x and the number 8364 represents the 
Euro sign).  It's conceivable that XeTeX can't handle the particular 
"flavor" of Unicode that you're giving it (like, I don't know, 
UTF-32LE).  Is the file saved as UTF-8?  With or without a BOM (byte 
order mark)?

This probably isn't the problem, but it's worth checking.  If you don't 
know how to check, I can run you through it.
