The only other option is to use an image.

Here we go again... ;-)
And how are they supposed to READ this? Turn the monitor sideways?

This isn't a print page. Forget rotated text. It's not very user friendly.

Hi CD&

You article(MSDN) link is very helpful. When I was reading that, writing-mode:tb-rl or lr-tb. This gets me closer to finish my task, except i need top-to-bottom text to be in bottom-to-top, I guess that is a limitation for the writing-mode.

Any Ideas .. ?

I appreciate it.

Thx.

The writing modein that artical is as close as you can get, I don't know of any other options.  This is not something I would do on a site, so it is possible there is something else I don't know about.  It is part of international language elements, but the support still has a long way to go.

If you can't use what is there, you are probably going to have to go to using an image.

The one thing you might try, and I not sure it comes out in the right sequence is apply a style class like:

<style>
   .bidicls {unicode-bidi:embed;direction;rtl;writing-mode:tb-rl; }
</style>

If it works it will be IE5.5+ only.  Netscrap 6 won't recognize the writing-mode, and will render differently.  Older browsers will ignore the whole entry.
