Yes, I had all the standard Lucida Bright Fonts w/Lucida NewMath in
FFIL/LWFN format for TeXtures under OS 7 through OS 9 and bought the expert
set in .pfb format only after I had produced the .pfb set from the FFIL/LWFM
set for use with gwtex. Your parenthetical remark is correct.

I must say that if it wasn't for many discussions by you and others on this
list I never would have known how to do that conversion; many thanks again!

Note; the problem with \Gamma (and presumably other symbols too) occurs even
when no special math font is used with fontspec 1.5, just the \setromanfont{
Hoefler Text} does it.

Good Luck,
