Hmm, Lucida Calligraphy has 'italic' set, which I assume causes emacs to not use it for non-italic text. However, I wonder why it is creating a synth-italic entity here -- it shouldn't.

That's right, there's only an italic variant of it. (If I demand italic, it uses it and does NOT use a synthetic variant.)

If there's only an italic variant, it should be used as regular, and, in principle, the italic variant should be realized as a synthetic font. Normally what I've seen done there in print is that if a block of text is emphasized in italics, the extra- emphasized portions of it are then regular. So you could create a synthetic variant with slant to the left (using the existing slant (degree) information).

I'm not sure this is a call that should be made by the driver or the emacs core (when it asks for fonts in family X, and only italic comes back).
