Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-fonts-4] [varfont] Italic & Oblique benefit from not including a <number>

> Do you know of any platform or app that would synthesize slant at varying angles?

Skimming comments at, it seems that InDesign offers a Skew option in the Character palette. And people then start discussing the exact angles they prefer...

It's also been possible for years in XeTeX, which allows a font to be loaded with a specific slant factor.

I expect some type designers will be horrified, but given that `font-style:oblique` allows the author to request a specific `angle`, why *wouldn't* we respect that when synthesizing a slanted face?
