I don't understand what the problem is, the text says "horizontal
writing mode". I can't read it otherwise.

If that's not enough for whatever reasons, what about instead the CSS
UI spec defines cursors against the orientation of baseline?

As far as I can tell, [css-writing-modes] does not say anything about what the writing mode of a run of tate-chuu-yoko is. If that’s considered horizontal, it would be good to make that explicit, and if that’s considered vertical, we either need a new term to refer to from [css3-ui], or we need to single out this case.
