	I am new to this list and to css so I hope this is an approprate
question.  I have been reading the discussion about rotation and am
wondering about the alignment of non-rotated text around rotated text.
If rotation of only 90 degree increments are allowed then this problem is
much simplifyed. My question is given some 45 degree rotated text, would
the surrounding text all line up on a vertical line even with the nearest
part of the rotated text, or would it form progressivly longer (or
shorter) lines starting at a set distance from the rotated text.
	I can see benifits of bothe cases and times when each may be
needed.  I suppose either effect could currently be generated using images
but that requires the author to create the images.  While this is not a
problem for the profssional html author, many casual authors will have
problems doing this.
	In the case of 90 degree rotated text the above is not a problem
for obvoius reasons.

	If I am missing somthing here making this post pointless I'll say
sorry now.

Regards,
Scott
