If you like rsfs10.mf you can easily de-slant it by changing the
slant:=.707;      % tilt ratio $(\Delta x/\Delta y)$

This value indicates an angle of about 35 degrees off vertical.
I changed it to .3535 (half its original value) or 19 degrees off
vertical. I only needed a couple of uppercase letters so I can't
say whether all letters came out OK.
