Have you loaded xunicode?

Needs to be fixed. But I wouldn't be surprised for a few edge cases still.

All math symbols should still be defined as macros, although I might 
have missed a few. The idea is to make it easy to use the new fonts, 
hopefully, without (m)any changes to the source document.

TeXLive 2010 for unicode-math and fontspec v2 and LuaLaTeX (if you want 
it) is a good metric. The actual version of XeTeX isn't too important 
as it's had maths support for years. (Sorry it's taken me so long.)
