Hmmm. Actually, I don’t really know what the cursor should be for a 45deg rotation (there is no slanted cursor). Using the baseline angle rounded to the closest 90deg sounds reasonable enough, but browsers don’t do that.

Which makes be think of text along a curvy path. Should the cursor change as the path’s tangent goes past 45deg?
