I'm trying to rotate some header texts in a table, however it seems to be a right mess. Im not great at CSS, and really dont understand the mess it causes and how to fix

Would it be possible for someone to assist me in sorting my mess out :-(

Thanks Gary, I had looked at that before, however I wanted to rotate by 270 (or -90) instead of 90 (+90), however I had the same issue as 'Timothy Watson' who also couldnt rotate the text the other way :-(

You just need to change the CSS to -90

I'm sure this is the one I used some time back, I'll throw a fiddle together now.

Sometimes its easier just doing it yourself

jQuery in question
var w=0
$("#Table1 th").each(function(){
    $(this).html('<div class="rotated">' + $(this).html() + '</div>')
    $(this).width()>w?w=$(this).width():w=w
})
$("#Table1 th div").each(function(){
    $(this).css("margin-top",(w-$(this).width()+5)+"px")
})

Open in new window

May need some tweaking
