Hey, I know it's possible to rotate txt, but I'm tring to rotate a list of text by -45 degrees and have it normally spaced and right justified.

I've played around with this a lot but can't get it to work. Any ideas?

Slew or rotate?

Do you mean to rotate the list as a block, or to slew the list? Either way, there are issues with the concept. A rotated or skewed element acts like a shifted (translated) relative positioned element. The original, natural position is preserved and is in the flow, while the translated/rotated/skewed rendering is out of the flow.

Show us what you've got, along with parent and sibling elements that might limit where things go.

cheers,
