For what it's worth, this is the matrix that Gecko produces for skew(ThetaX, ThetaY): | 1 tan(ThetaX) 0| | tan(ThetaY) 1 0| | 0 0 1| skewx(theta) is treated as identical to skew(theta, 0) and skewy(theta) is treated as identical to skew(0, theta). I have no position on whether this is useful to authors or mathematically meaningful. zwReceived on Wednesday, 2 December 2009 16:45:30 UTC
