With Firefox 45.0a1 nightly, try


where a) and b) correspond to the code involved in 
text-orientation-014.xht . Right now, I am not sure how should a 
sideways-ed latin text be rendered inside a line box whose dominant 
baseline is central.

text-orientation-014.xht also has another issue: the font used is not 
specified. So, the default system font on the tester's os is involved... 
while I might have another and different default system font for my os.

In this test


we "fix" (force) the font used. Chrome 49 Canary and Firefox 45 
differ... and I think (albeit not sure) Firefox is closer to the correct
