[XeTeX] Posters in Xe(La)TeX

I have just recently produced some posters in plain LaTeX, and had no  
problems whatsoever. In fact, for printing purposes, I think you  
probably better off with a postscript file anyways. I would recommend  
the a0poster class, and use latex, dvips,ps2pdf
You can see my posters at
where I have included tex, ps, and pdf versions
(I also put in a few hacks to generate a handout version of the  
poster as well).

I hope this helps.
