Rotate text with CSS
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].
