A useful tool for creating complex tables would be the ability to have text,
primarily the headers, run down to up, instead of the normal left to right.
This will keep the column from being too wide and pushing other columns off the
screen. I've given an example of the type of text I propose in an image file in
the URL I linked.
My apologies if I didn't understand this form properly.
IMHO this only can be done with:
<td style="writing-mode: tb-rl; filter: flipV() flipH();">
But this only works in IE, not in FireFox f.e.
This isn't possible with CSS 2.1, and I can't find anything on it in current CSS
If it ever becomes possible in standard CSS, we'll come back to it. Closing as
LATER for now.
