    css vertical text does not work in mozilla??


    i was looking for way how to display vertical text with css and found a solution:

    #vertical
    {
    writing-mode: tb-rl;
    filter: flipH flipV;
    }

    <div id="vertical">display vertical text</div>

    however, this works fine with IE 6.0, but is comletely ignored with
    Mozilla 1.4!
    is it that Mozilla just doesn't support this or is there a way how to work it around(write it in a way both IE and Mozilla could understand it)?

    i'll aprecciate your help very much..

    mozilla correctly ignores is at it isn't part of the current w3.orgs css standard


    it isn't adviceble to use proprietary style in your css. stick to the standars.

    "filter" is an MS proprietary attribute. It is not W3C CSS compliant.

    Perhaps someone has worked out a hack to get the same results. Sorry I can't be of avail.
