Hmmmm, what is going wrong here? It has selected bold italic instead  
of italic, which is weird.
Aha, a problem with the font (or XeTeX)!

\font\1="Lucida Sans Regular"\1 test	
\font\1="Lucida Sans Regular/B"\1 test	
\font\1="Lucida Sans Regular/I"\1 test	
\font\1="Lucida Sans Regular/BI"\1 test

I also notice that trying to select the font by calling it "Lucida  
Sans" also doesn't work, which it should if I understand things  
correctly. Seems like the font is a bit buggy in its naming.

Anyway, you can fix this up in fontspec of course by selecting the  
italic font specifically:

   [ItalicFont={Lucida Sans Oblique}]
   {Lucida Sans Regular}
test \itshape test
