The basic problem remains if I move \setmainfont{...} to the preamble  
(and delete all the other instances of it in the document): setting  
the main font to Baskerville or Hoefler Text doesn't generate italic  
text from \emph{...} or boldface text from \textbf{...}. But I can get  
italic and boldface text if I set the main font to something else  
(like Book Antiqua), which was what I was trying to demonstrate.
