The italic angle in the "post" table is a number that measures the angle in degrees between the geometrical vertical and the font glyph vertical. The first font dimension is the slant per point, i.e., the arctangent of the additive inverse of the italic angle. For Latin Modern Roman Italic 10, this gives 0.24, which is very close to the table value of 0.242. Original TeX uses the slant per point for accent placement, while LuaTeX uses the OpenType tables.
