Vertical Text

Posted on 2008-11-18

I need to put vertical text on my site, so I'm using...

filter: flipv fliph;

to do that.  The text appears vertical in IE but not in Firefox.  I'm assuming Firefox doesn't recognize the flipv fliph command, though we all know what happens when we assume.  Is there a different command to allow vertical text to be seen vertically in Firefox and IE?

    "Is there a different command to allow vertical text to be seen vertically in Firefox and IE?"

    YES -- the rotated text algorithm you are using uses IE-ONLY calls.  i.e. it works ONLY on IE.  At the time of writing, there are NO calls you can use to make non-IE browsers react the same -- i.e. they do not have built in calls for rotated text as does IE.   Maybe in later CSS3 versions, but not now, sorry.
