Vertical Text with CSS
This creates a quite interesting effect of vertical text, in this example used with a link.
Unfortunately this is IE only, so use with caution. If your audience consists of IE only (or if you don't give a damn about other browsers, I know you guys are out there) then go ahead.
Hopefully, alot of improvents to vertical text standards wise will come with CSS3.
