I once saw a similar instance with a font-- where FrameMaker added an extra 
slant to italics. This particular font was one  that I created in 
Fontographer because I the font family had no italic version available for 
purchase. Fontographer (or, more likely, my knowledge of it!) must create 
fonts in a weird way because FrameMaker saw this font as a regular font. 
Assigning it the italic attribute in FrameMaker put an extra slant on it. 
The solution was to treat it as a regular font, so that it would print as a 
normal italic.

Subject: switched printers -- now HelvObl prints with extra slant
