I would like to make \mathbb{E} italic, i have tried \mathit{\mathbb{E}} and \mathbb{\mathit{E}}, both of them look like \mathbb{E}, I can not see the italic effect. Could anyone help?

By the way, I do see some blackboard italic words in a paper, so it is realizable in LaTeX.

You can try with


in your preamble and use \mathbbmsl{A} to get an A as "blackboard bold slanted". There's no Type1 version of the font, though, so a bitmap will be generated.
