[XeTeX] Hoefler Text uppercase numbers

With Mac OS X Tiger, Apple broke Hoefler Text such that uppercase  
numbers can't be accessed via font features (in the upright roman),  
although the glyphs exist in the font.

Without digging into Apple's font tools to learn how to patch the  
problem at its source (I don't often use Hoefler Text, except in the  
fontspec documentation), here's a way to get around the problem,  
crudely, in XeTeX:

\fontspec{Hoefler Text}
