Re: [jlreq] Japanese text rotated 90 degrees (#214)

As far as I know, it's just following to traditional custom.

- several local governments are now using horizontal-lr for (most of?) all official documents including local laws (e.g. [Wakayama Pref. horizontal-lr 2001/Dec/21, applied from 2002/Apr/1](
- Courts had switched to horizontal-lr for all documents including judgements (e.g. [supreme court](
- In original order to use horizontal-lr for official documents (e.g. [1952 cabinet notice no.16](, [MIC notice no.1 2001, see p6 no 16-6](, [Yokosuka city](, some exceptions are listed. Usually, ones specified by law, ones specified by other public organizations, traditional items like certificate, are included.
- even in national diet, there are official documents of proposed law in horizontal-lr (e.g. [House of Councillors, 201st, No.20](, links to PDF at bottom)
- official gazette (gov) and some Official Journals are regulated to include laws in their original format, so text of laws are included by rotating per block. In official gazette (gov), laws are (originally) in vertical-tb and could be included as-is, but ministerial ordinances are usually in horizontal-lr and will be included by rotating per block.
