font/sfnt: make PostTable.ItalicAngle a float64

Previously, it was a float32, which obviously has 32 bits of state. Not
all of that 32 bit state space is meaningful, since NaN has multiple bit
representations. The underlying file format field (of type "Fixed" or
16.16 fixed point) is also 32 bits of state
(https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/typography/opentype/spec/post).
Therefore, converting from 32 bit fixed point to 32 bit floating point
can be lossy. Instead, use 64 bit floating point. 53 significand bits
can losslessly represent all possible 16.16 fixed point values.

Using float64 is also arguably more Go-like, as the default type for the
ideal constant 0.5 is float64, not float32.
