Can CSS Tilt Paragraphs at an Angle?

CSS question. I know you can orientate paragraphs horizontally and even vertically using CSS. However, is it possible to give paragraph a constant tilt, like this?

I'm pretty sure this is impossible, but I'd love to be proved wrong....

You can do it with IE filters (as shown with one of my silly IE toys here). But that only works for IE4+/Win32 PC, and even then it's not 100% guaranteed to work. No other way to do this outside of Flash or Images, afaik.

There's this from Eric Meyer's site. It talks about putting slanted edges on areas of text. There's also this from the CSS Zen Garden which actually works more on fooling the eye with slanted border images.

But that's the closest I could find.

kokogiak, that's a fun tool you cooked up but it didn't work well with my website. Boohoo!

You can tip the borders of the text area (using slants and stuff), but you can't make the actual text tip in any kind of browser-neutral way.
