support is

be used until

(select the

not fill the

	No need to wait for CSS3, both XSL
	  http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xsl-20011015/
	<http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xsl-20011015/> and SVG (check section
10)
	  http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/
	<http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/> support vertical text in their current
Recommendations. The CSS3 proposals of record are largely based on the XSL
extensions, but the Rudy support in CSS3 was done only in CSS.
