Me too! I have Helvetica Neue as an Apple font (.dfont), a container  
of fonts, in this case of TrueType fonts. This documents compiles fine:


\setmainfont{Helvetica Neue}
\setsansfont[UprightFont={HelveticaNeue-Light}, BoldFont= 
{HelveticaNeue-Bold}, BoldItalic={HelveticaNeue-BoldItalic},  
ItalicFont={HelveticaNeue-LightItalic}]{Helvetica Neue}

\noindent Das ist bloß ein Text. Der kann auch \textbf{dick} sein und
sich dann \textit{neigen}. Er kann seine \emph{Neigung} aber natürlich
auch anders, und zwar \textbf{ganz \emph{stark}} zum Ausdruck bringen.

This is a test.

\textbf{As well as this!}





According to pdffonts (from the xpdf suite) these fonts are used
