I am trying to mimic
  FILTER: flipV()flipH(); WRITING-MODE: tb-rl;
for the print media.  I have found that filter functions are ignored in print, but is there an alternative?  My ultimate goal is to get vertical text for a cross-tab type report in html.  I do not wish to create images, as the values and the background color are both dynamic, based on values set on a maintenance page.

Hi twinfrey,

Wouldn't tb-rl do it just by itself?

Yes and no.  I figured out the problem.

A TD element does not work properly.  However a span element does.

Here is a sample:  http://www.operationbig.com/verticaltest/vertical.html

You can see that both appear fine on the screen.  But, in the print preview, only the span retains the proper style.

Thanks for your help.  Even though you did not fully answer the question, you got me thinking.

Please close discussion.
