complete description of this issues

Presentation / Styling issues: Vertical arrangement of characters If some string is written in vertical mode, then writing each character on a new line may not be suitable, Styling like vertical arrangement of the character in Hindi. 
When this issue was first discussed, there were queries that whether Indic scripts (Devanagari etc.) are written in this fashion and will be of use anywhere.

It's not clear to me, from the description, whether you want an option to render the expected result, or you want it by default.

If the former, you can use the property text-orientation: upright to get your expected result.

If the latter, now it is Unicode who defines the default orientation for each character.
Please make your feedback to Unicode.
