Typowiki How-To Oblique Article?

I remember coming across an article on the Typophile wiki a while back that was a How-To on creating proper obliques. I can't seem to find it anymore, however.

Does anyone have a link to this? There were a couple details in it I'd like to review.

That's the one. Thanks.

That's something. Note also the links to italics discussion and especially see Briem's pages on italics. Start here:

and note also the three sub-links in this section. His bit on curves is great.

I've already started writing up some of my own observations on italics and obliques, stemming from my work on Hypatia Sans italics. Mostly aimed at the practical issues of making modified obliques or italics from an upright face. Might be helpful to somebody out there, I hope.

This one's for Thomas Phinney, and I'm sure it's been asked a million times before. I'm just too ignorant to know where to look for the answer. Is Hypatia Sans italics available yet? I'm currently using the font family offered with CS3 and it rocks. Let me know when and where I can get my hands on the italics. Thanks
