There is a number of bugs with mixed-direction shrink-wrap in IE8 Beta2. They will be fixed in the next public release which is coming soon (or at least all shrink-wrap bugs that we currently know about will be fixed).

Actually, -ms-block-progression: rl; doesn't do shrink wrap the way I  
wanted. It seems that th { -ms-block-progression: rl; } does the  
following:
  1) The height of the cell becomes the height of the view port. (I  
wanted it to become the height of the tallest cell content on the  
table row.)
  2) The width of the cell is determined by normal shrink wrap as if - 
ms-block-progression: rl; weren't there. That is, the width of the  
cell is the width of the longest word in the cell if the word were  
rendered horizontally. (I wanted the cells to shrink wrap to just  
narrow enough for the vertical text to fit in the cell.)

CSS3 Text Layout and the table cell shrink wrap seem to need better  
interaction here.
