90 Degree Vertical Text

I am playing about with the following code: "filter:flipv()" within CSS.

What I want to do is flip the text so that it sits at a 90 degree angle and can be read from left to right, top to bottom (not mirrored).

I have tried: "filter:flipv(90) but this doesn't seem to work.

Am I going about this the wrong way? Am I using the right code? can I do this? Is this only an IE thing?

That seems to be a DHTML [w3schools.com] object, from what I could find.

Thanks for the pointer, I found the code that I was looking for:

writing-mode: tb-rl;

You were right it was DHTML.

It writes the text from top to bottom, right to left. Perfect, although it is only IE 5.5 > compatible and don't even mention Netscape! ~:)

again thanks,
