Here I uploaded a photo from a Japanese book.

http://twitpic.com/33tofa

The global writing mode of this book is vertical-rl.
Writing mode of tables and captions are horizontal-tb.

Further, index section and annotation section are horizontal-tb.

This is typical case for Japanese book, will be typical for
Japanese EPUB.

If web browsers support vertical writing, the situation will
be very popular on web.

Tokushige Kobayashi
