synthslant – Synthetically slant text

This package allows to slant (“shear”) short pieces of text to the left or to the right by an arbitrary angle, thus creating for example “fake italics” or upright italics.

Several back-ends that do the actual shearing are supported, though currently the pdf back-end works best concerning output quality and processing speed.
