Question HTML -> Vertical text in a table heading?

I want to format text in a table heading so that it appears vertical instead of horizontal, is there any way too achive this?

Maybe with CSS or a HTML command??

Hey,
Checkout this page, it should be what your after http://www.htmlhelp.com/reference/c...ical-align.html

"The vertical-align property may be used to alter the vertical positioning of an inline element, relative to its parent element or to the element's line. (An inline element is one which has no line break before and after it, for example, EM, A, and IMG in HTML.)"

Mytch thank you for reaction, but I think you misunderstood me,
I do not want to change the vertical alignment but I want my text vertical.
For example in Excel you can rotate your text 90% so it is displayed vertical.

If anyone got suggetions I would galdy hear them.

The Mike

layout-flow is actually deprecated and has been replaced by writing-mode.

Here is the reference for writing-mode at MSDN.

writing-mode works from IE5.5 and up (unfortunatly not Moz etc.) and has been submitted as proposed addition to the CSS standard (W3C).

layout-flow was never submitted.
