[XeTeX] fontspec's \setmathrm seems to have no effect

Thank you Peter and Mskala for your help.

Does anyone know if it is possible to use fontspec to set the fonts
for math objects such as operators, letters, and symbols?
The package mathpazo.sty sets these to Palatino (or something similar)
using what is apparently an NFSS scheme similar to this:
\DeclareSymbolFont{operators} {OT1}{ppl} {m}{n}
\DeclareSymbolFont{upright} {OT1}{zplm}{m}{n}
\DeclareSymbolFont{letters} {OML}{zplm}{m}{it}
\DeclareSymbolFont{symbols} {OMS}{zplm}{m}{n}
\DeclareSymbolFont{largesymbols} {OMX}{zplm}{m}{n}
\SetSymbolFont{operators} {bold}{OT1}{ppl}{b}{n}
\SetSymbolFont{upright} {bold}{OT1}{zplm}{b}{n}
\SetSymbolFont{letters} {bold}{OML}{zplm}{b}{it}
\SetSymbolFont{symbols} {bold}{OMS}{zplm}{b}{n}
\SetSymbolFont{largesymbols}{bold}{OMX}{zplm}{m}{n}
\DeclareMathAlphabet{\mathit} {OT1}{ppl}{m}{it}
\DeclareMathAlphabet{\mathbf} {OT1}{zplm}{b}{n}
\DeclareMathAlphabet{\mathbold} {OML}{zplm}{b}{it}
\SetMathAlphabet{\mathit} {bold}{OT1}{ppl}{b}{it}
\DeclareSymbolFontAlphabet{\mathrm} {operators}
\DeclareSymbolFontAlphabet{\mathnormal}{letters}
\DeclareSymbolFontAlphabet{\mathcal} {symbols}
Is there an equivalent fontspec scheme?
Alternatively, if NFSS is the only option, how would I find the code
letters (e.g. ppl or zplm) for a given font such as for the
Asana-Math.otf font that comes with TeXlive?
Many thanks in advance,
Dan
