XeTeX is with MikTeX. For compatibility with existing ASCII files, working with UTF-8 is better rather than UTF-16, (or OS X Unicode as option in TeXShop Editor). XeTeX always uses UTF-8 for the text files it writes, such as the log file and write commands. Command line way to set the recommended TeXShop preferences for use with XeTeX is by executing the following commands in OS X Terminal window:
defaults write TeXShop Encoding "UTF-8 Unicode"
defaults write TeXShop TexScriptCommand "xetex"
defaults write TeXShop LatexScriptCommand "xelatex"
defaults write TeXShop DefaultScript 102
