1st paragraph is normal slant handwriting, while the second is leftward slant handwriting.

\begin{textit}Some text\end{textit} is wrong; there is the command \textit that takes as argument the text you want to typeset in italics.

The program runs equally well under XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{Cambria} \setsansfont[Scale=MatchLowercase]{Calibri} \newcommand\test{The ...


The following example uses slanting via TikZ: \tikz[ baseline=(X.base), inner sep=0pt, transform canvas={xslant=cos(#1)}, ] \node (X) {#2};% The slant angle is #1 and the slanted material is in #2. For some unknown reason, the bounding box is pretty wrong, the box is horizontally centered at the baseline with much shorter height. Therefore the ...


Ugly as hell. ;-) \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx} \DeclareRobustCommand{\slantflip}[1]{% \raisebox{\depth}{% \scalebox{1}[-1]{% \scalebox{-1}[1]{\slshape\sffamily#1}% }% }\negthinspace } \newcommand{\allsl}{\slantflip{A}} \newcommand{\allex}{\slantflip{E}} \begin{document} \allsl{} and \allex{} \end{document}
