skewfac is the fraction of the character height by which the top of the character is shifted with respect to the bottom.
|skew() is used to slant characters to give them more impact or to create an italic appearance. Skewing of characters is turned on and off by inserting the character ` (back apostrophe or grave sign) within a string. ` acts as a toggle switch. Its special meaning is overridden by preceding it with an @.|
