NetBSD webster 3.0 NetBSD 3.0 (WEBSTER-TMP) #1: Tue Dec 20 19:48:09 CET 2005  krille@webster:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/WEBSTER-TMP i386

With teTeX-3.0nb1 (installed from print/teTeX) dvipdfm/dvipdfmx render \textsl as normal (unslanted) text when a custom font is used.

I have seen this with the New Century Schoolbook and Times fonts.

When using plain Computer Modern fonts the slanted text is rendered correctly.

The custom fonts are also rendererd properly in xdvi, dvips and pdflatex. However I'd prefer to continue using dvipdfmx. I have a work created with teTeX2 some time ago where it worked, but I haven't rechecked now.
Consider this LaTeX file:


afdfljf \textsl{dkeic} decmei

latex test.tex
dvipdfmx test.tex
xpdf test.pdf

Look at the word in the middle.
