This appears to be a request to add the CSS3 Writing Mode text-orientation property (or an equivalent) [1].

"glyphs from horizontal scripts are set sideways with 90° counter-clockwise rotation" --> looks good assuming that only horizontal scripts in otherwise vertical text ever need to be rotated. Is that true?

Pierre-Anthony Lemieux, 15 Jan 2014, 22:26:05

the described liaison cites as a use case the handling of horizontal text in a vertical writing mode context; that is the problem addressed by the solution; arbitrary rotation of a glyph can be viewed as a separate requirement, independently of the use case indicated; the proposed solution does not address arbitrary rotation, as no use case is indicated;

Actually the liaison (Section 6.11 of ST 428-7) does not contain this limitation, but merely notes that "this is most commonly used to present special characters in a text string that is being displayed vertically."
