Italics: Backslash and pipe displayed wrong #60

I recently switched to Source Code Pro for development and have discovered that the backslash and pipe characters are displayed wrong in italics. (using NetBeans)

To me the backslash looks like a pipe (the slight angle is almost unnoticeable even when the font is very large) and the pipe looks like a forward slash (angle between vertical and forward slash).

This screenshot shows a backslash, pipe and forward slash (|/)


I don't know a lot about fonts. But I know that this could be remedied by using a custom italics font. Unfortunately I couldn't find one for Source Code Pro.

Is there any way I can make them display properly?



Sorry for the duplicate post, I just discovered that issue #6 is about the same thing. Guess I should spell check my searches..
