I'm realizing this answer assumed you are using XeTeX on Mac OS X,  
which may not be the case. Sorry for that, I haven't yet fully  
integrated the cross-platform nature of XeTeX. Thus, in case you're  
not using Mac OS X, the TextEdit tip won't help, and the use of  
OpenType-info.tex is the only solution.

The XeTeX sample files are available as a separate download from  
<http://scripts.sil.org/xetex_download>, in the form of the archive  

By the way, it seems this archive hasn't been updated to reflect the  
changes in the doc and sample files included in the Mac disk image
