The default "Lucida Grande" available on MacOS X has no italic variant.
To confirm this look for Lucida Grande in Font Book or write "TEST" in
TextEdit, set its font to Lucida Grande and try to make it Italic.

If you want to use SLANT_ITALIC, you need a font which actually has an italic
(Please notice that some fonts have oblique style instead of italic and the
quartz font backend considers them to be different).
