I've never really understood this, but I think updating to the  
current version of fontspec.sty should fix it; this was a problem in  
some earlier releases.

Loading the xunicode package may also serve as a workaround (but I'd  
still recommend updating to the newest packages). If you're using  
traditional LaTeX commands for accents and other non-ASCII  
characters, you should load xunicode anyway in order to handle these

By the way (unrelated to the current problem), these lines are an  
obsolete/deprecated form; the current version would be:

%!TEX TS-program = xelatex
%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode
