Perhaps this slipped through since I probably mentioned it at the tail  
of another post:

When using Hoefler italics, if I add a diacritic using the snippet that  
Somdeva offered---

The middle line (above) shows a few examples of this. Note the 'e' in 
"Here". Compare it with the third line, which is devoid of diacritics.

Is there a way to influence the glyph selection?
