It's possible that these applications slant the regular font to  
produce sort of an italics lookalike. You can identify such a fake  
italic e.g. by looking at the (small) 'a', which would have the same  
form as a regular 'a' apart from the slant, whereas a real italic a  
has a different form. Same thing with many other characters.
