[OS X TeX] Hoefler and Swashes question

This is another newbie email about the stupid swashes that comes with  
Hoefler italic. After searching the list archive, I found a promising  
lead that uses \DeclareFontShape. However, it doesn't seem to work  
for me. I'm using XeTeX 0.996. A small sample to illustrate my  
problem is below.


\setromanfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Hoefler Text}

         {<-> "Hoefler\space Text\space Italic:Smart\space Swashes=! 
Line\space Final\space Swashes,!Line\space Initial\space Swashes"}{}


After I build the PDF using xelatex directly on the command line, I  
can still see the swash of the 'w' and 't'.

I also played with the XeTeX FontSample.tex and manage to control the  
swashes. However, that seems to be a raw TeX sample, and the above  
example seems to agree with the obvious translation between the two  
(mainly add all the \space).

Am I missing something obvious here?
