Why is the e slanted in dell's name?

The E in dell is slanted to represent a 30% annual increase in profit, which was accurate for the most part when dell was first 'big' but has since been more-so on a roller-coaster (going up and down)

The reason I know this is because I am an Ex-Dell employee (thanks to their layoff of thousands of Americans for outsourcing) But that's one of the first things we were taught, and I'm pretty sure it's an insider knowledge-base and not meant to be shared, but I'm sharing it because I no longer work for them and no longer care!
