I have some normal text I would like to skew so that its edges align to 
an isometric grid.

That is, the vertical and horizontal edges should be rotated 26.565° 
from the horizontal screen edge.

26.565° = atan(1/2)

Would appreciate some help. Here is what I have so far:

matrix
<
+1, +0, +0,
+1, +1, +0,
+0, +0, +1,
+0, +0, +0
 >
rotate -z * atand(1/2)

It is close but no cigar. Thanks!


Mike
