official = complying with the design published by the European

It *is* just sloped, but Adobe calls it "italic".

Neither boldface nor sloped is "official", but it isn't 
forbidden either.  Using the "regular" symbol within an 
italic and/or boldface environment would be too ugly.  

Other font families (incl. EC/TC) go still one step further:  
The shape of the symbol is adapted to the style of the 
particular font.  This complies with the way other currency 
symbols are treated, but it is definitely *not* the official 
way.  With monospaced (typewriter) fonts, however, this 
cannot be avoided.
