Fontconfig may have extracted inaccurate information about this font; you
can check that with the 'fc-list' program:
$ fc-list 'Courier 10 Pitch' family style weight slant
The output should be:
Courier 10 Pitch:style=Bold Italic:slant=100:weight=200
Courier 10 Pitch:style=Italic:slant=100:weight=80
Courier 10 Pitch:style=Regular:slant=0:weight=80
Courier 10 Pitch:style=Bold:slant=0:weight=200
If you aren't seeing 'slant=100' for the italic versions, then fontconfig
is misdetecting these fonts. Fontconfig had problems correctly
identifying Type1 fonts which have been fixed in current CVS (at least,
that's what generated the output above).
