Rotate text with CSS

Posted in on 30 July 2009

Jonathan Snook published an interesting blog post recently where he described text rotation with CSS. The post was inspired by another article where a date display technique with sprites was described. Even though the latter method does not actually rotate the text [it uses an image replacement method], the effect is still pretty cool.

Both examples show great use of CSS to do something that is slightly different.

PS: Just in case you were wondering, the CSS3 transform method in the Snook article can be used to rotate images as well [although the Basic Image filter that gets this to work in Internet Explorer can only rotate by 90° increments].
