I guess I didn't phrase my question clearly.  I'd like to try out xetex 
to see what it can do (and to see examples of how to do it).  Running 
xelatex sample2e doesn't help.

Texlive ships a lot of opentype and truetype fonts.  I was hoping to see 
examples that don't rely on "system fonts" that don't happen to be 
installed on my system.
