I've noticed that in a lot of typefaces simulating upright hand lettering, the horizontal strokes slant upward. In Comic Sans and Comic Neue, this slant is especially visible on the crossbars of lowercase e and uppercase A and H. So does the H in the logo of the Holiday Inn hotel chain. Apple Casual shows the effect in more horizontals, as do Dom Casual, Wastrel, Blambot Casual, Segoe Print, and Tekton. In the Apache/August family (trade names include Apache URW, Cochise, Disney Print, Jester, Stanley, and Toledo), nearly everything horizontal has a 10% grade or 6 degree skew, including glyph baselines. The upward slope tendency also appears in ''kaishuu'', or Japanese "regular" script.
Is there a typographic term for this phenomenon in general?
