Hmmm... I looks like there are major problems if I try to use the lucbmath
package. The missing \Gamma occurs when I have no special math package

\setromanfont[Numbers=Lining]{Hoefler Text}

is all I have loaded. When I use:

     {<-> "Hoefler\space Text"}{}
     {<-> "Hoefler\space Text\space Italic"}{}
     {<-> "Hoefler\space Text\space Black"}{}
     {<-> ssub * hoefl/bx/n}{}
     {<-> "Hoefler\space Text\space Black\space Italic"}{}
     {<-> ssub * hoefl/bx/it}{}
     {<-> "Hoefler\space Text:Letter\space Case=Small\space Caps"}{}

The \Gamma is there. Note: in both cases the rest of the math italic appears
to be CM.

Good Luck,
