I am puzzled. I have the following:

{`The aim of this research' --- \emph{Note: the thesis does not itself 
devise the solution (you did that) rather the thesis \emph{documents} 
the solution}}

The text appears within a longtable environment. What is puzzling me is 
that all the text following the em-dash is set in italics; I was 
expecting the word 'document's to be set in Roman script owing to the 
nested \emph commands.

I have tried the code in the main body of the document (ie outside the 
longtable) and the effect is the same.

I think it may be a problem with gtamachoefler. I used the following 
font setup:


However, when I switched from hoefler to didot with gill sans for sf:


The double \emph performs as it should

Any thoughts?
