Rather than use 'auto' for SVG backwards compatibility, it might be
nicer to define 'auto' as what is called 'rotate-normal' and make
that the default.  

What exactly is the difference betwee 'vertical-right' and
'rotate-right'?  The first applies to non-ideographic characters only,
the second applies to all?

Cheers,
