[jlreq] Table cells don't handle vertical direction properly (#171)

r12a has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/jlreq:

== Table cells don't handle vertical direction properly ==
If you place the <code class="kw" translate="no">writing-mode</code> property with a value of <code class="kw" translate="no">vertical-rl</code> on an individual table cell, you would expect the text in that cell to be displayed vertically. This works as expected in <span class="pass">Edge</span>, <span class="pass">Internet Explorer</span> and <span class="pass">Gecko</span> browsers. <span class="fail">Blink</span> and <span class="fail">Webkit</span> browsers, on the other hand, leave the text horizontal but rotate the characters to the left. Note, also, by the way that you have to set the height of the cell in these browsers for a span to be displayed vertically.

See test results for major browsers: <a target="_blank" href="https://www.w3.org/International/tests/repo/results/writing-mode-vertical#rl_tables">vertical-rl</a>, <a target="_blank" href="https://www.w3.org/International/tests/repo/results/writing-mode-vertical#rl_tables">vertical-lr</a>.
