In order to achieve the slant necessary for stairs, you need to extend the stair tiles one tile above and one tile below. Like this:
Code:
# are slanty cliffs
|_ are vertical cliffs
= are stairs
 
|         |          
|   ===   |          ##       ##
|_|_===_|_|          ####===####
|_|_===_|_|          ####===####
    ===
Vertical Cliffs    Slanty Cliffs
Why one tile above? It would look just as good only with 1 extra tile below. Better, actually.
