I am running Mac OS X 10.9.1 and use TeXShop. 

I have need of a proprietary font, FoundrySterling-Book, to be precise. I have loaded the font using Font Book but cannot use the font in Xelatex. The following test program works well if the sans serif font is Verdana, say, but not if it is FoundrySterling-Book.

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper]{article}
\defaultfontfeatures{Mapping=tex-text} % To support LaTeX quoting style
\setromanfont{Times New Roman}
\setsansfont[Scale=MatchLowercase, Mapping=tex-text]{Verdana}


This is text in Times New Roman.

{\sf and this is Verdana.}


The log reports “I can’t find FoundrySterling-Book” . Though the font clearly is recognised by Font Book. This is the information pane from Font Book:
