Thanks for this suggestion. Unfortunately,

\usepackage[active,tightpage,xetex]{preview} % Does not work with xelatex?
\PreviewEnvironment{tabular} % material is within a tabular evironment
\setlength\PreviewBorder{0pt} % valid with tightpage option

and variations thereof in the preamble do not seem to produce a "bounding box" 
type PDF. I will email comp.text.tex to enquire further.

Incidentally, I have used preview successfully with TikZ-PGF and pdflaTeX.
