Put Text on its Side in CSS (rotated)
While messing around with a hobby site I went to tilt text on its side and realized I didn’t really have a method for doing this.
After google’ing and playing a little I found this method that I like.
It only requires two CSS properties and plays nicely with surrounding elements.
The trick is using
transform: scale(-1); writing-mode: vertical-lr;
Here’s a demo of it in action:

Optionally if you want actual vertical text with the letters remaining upright, you can drop the transform: scale(-1); property and add text-orientation: upright;.
