    FileMaker can rotate text in 90 degree increments on layouts very easily. However, there is no currently implemented HTML or CSS standard that defines rotated text for web pages. There is a rumor that the CSS 3 standard will define rotated text. However, it may be years before it is actually implemented correctly by the majority of web browsers. In the mean time this demo will present a custom function that will turn your text into vertical HTML text.
