  • FontSlant is an option for Cell, StyleBox and StyleForm which specifies how slanted the characters should be in text in the cell.
  • Typical settings are "Plain", "Italic" and "Oblique".
  • With the "Oblique" setting, each character typically has the same basic form as with "Plain", but is slanted. With the "Italic" setting, the basic form is different.
  • See notes for FontFamily.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.8.9Section 2.10.10.
