[XeTeX] Sanskrit hyphenation with XeLatex

On the issue with MS Word - where the font does not possess italic, bold, bold italic, Word will artificially generate a pseudo-version of these from the basic roman.  Am I right in thinking that TeXLive 2008 has something similar built in?  I seem to recall it in a discussion thread.

    If you use Sanskrit 2003, as in your test file, it has no bold face,
    that is why.

  I see this issue with Nakula fonts too. [Interestingly, if we use Sanskrit 2003 in MS Word, BOLD does work.]
  The same is true for \textit also.

  Am I missing something here?

  Another observation.
  When there \footnote is preceding a word (without space), that word does not get hyphenated.
