Only on my MacBook running 10.6 do I have this problem. Here is the  
minimal file:


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

\font\test="ITC Galliard Pro Roman" at 12pt

This is a test.



with this log:


This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.2-0.9995.2 (TeX Live 2009)
  restricted \write18 enabled.
entering extended mode
(./fonttest.texkpathsea: Invalid fontname `ITC Galliard Pro Roman',  
contains ' '

! Font \test="ITC Galliard Pro Roman" at 12.0pt not loadable: Metric  
(TFM) file
  or installed font not found.
l.4 \font\test="ITC Galliard Pro Roman" at 12pt

This works on every other Mac I have, all running 10.6. I checked the  
International preference pane but didn't see anything that looked as  
if it were out of place. Other fonts that have no spaces in the names  
seem to work just fine.

A puzzle. Any ideas?
