Subject: Re: [dita] Fwd: Re: [dita-users] vertical orientation of text in table columns..

table/@orient and entry/@rotate are meant to follow and be compatible with
their CALS equivalents. The CALS spec[1] states pretty unequivocally that
it's 90 degrees counter-clockwise.

ROTATE: Content is either in the orientation of the table (if the value is
zero) or 90 degrees counterclockwise to table orientation (if the value is
other than zero). If the table orient="land", rotate="1" achieves text
³upside-down² relative to the normally oriented page heads and feet.
Declared Value = %yesorno; (NUMBER)
Default = IMPLIED (interpret as ³0²)

One could reasonably argue that this is a shortcoming in the CALS model,
but that's a separate discussion.

 How will @rotate work with topics that use right-to-left languages.
Shouldn't it there be clockwise, not counter-clockwise?
