OK, with new spirit I tried out the example above - it worked. Fine.  
I changed "Hoefler Text" to "Cairo" - it worked! Fantastic.

I took one of my further .tex files, copied the strange first lines  
(beginning with %!) and added \usepackage{fontspec} - the result was  
a catastrophy, wrong fonts, ugly look. Business as usual for me.
Then I removed the three added lines. Result: The old file was demaged.

All this is horrible. The day will arrive I use Open Office instead  
of TeX.
