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.
