script fonts don't), put your headline or whatever in a separate
container (if it isn't already) and use the Skew command from the
Transform palette. An angle of 12° from vertical is typical, although
you can make it whatever you like; of course this won't create a true
italic font but it will have an "oblique" or "pseudo-italic"
appearance. If you have several consecutive lines of text to treat
this way, to keep the margins aligned some extra work will be
required: you can put each one in its own container, you can use the
text-wrapping feature on a rectangle (or any other shape) to force
each line to start where you want, or you can apply incrementally
increasing paragraph indents to each line after the first.
