Works here (Mac OS X, uptodate standard TeX and XeTeX [not the SVN  
version] with i-installer) with every font I tried (Hoefler Text,  
Antykwa Torunska, Skia, Dolly).

Full example:

This is \fontname\font.
The italic is \textit{\fontname\font},
and bold is \textbf{\fontname\font}.

test \emph{test}\footnote{test}

23 testing textsuperscript: \textsuperscript{23}

Note that the "Family name" didn't work with Type 1 fonts like Dolly  
- I had to take the Postscript name. Automatic changing to italic and  
bold didn't work either.
