With XeTeX you certainly don't need this block.

I could get your result only then when I remove GFS Didot from the font service, so I presume that you did not configure your font services to provide this font family.

XeTeX can load a font directly from the disk when you also describe the path to the font file. Otherwise it uses a font service. If some MS Windows (office) programme can use GFS Didot, then it's likely that it's in the font service and can be accessed by XeTeX and xdvipdfmx.
