Have you done a more extensive test? Do you have no italics at all? The 
OTF version of Libertine is the "native" version, btw; the TTF version 
has outlines that are automatically converted from cubic to quadratic, 
and the process is somewhat lossy. In general it's better to use the OTF 
version of Libertine if possible.
