Well, I am designing a website for my mothers business, and I am useing it as an oppertunity to learn CSS, js and DHTML techniques in general. Beforel this point I have just used HTML and frames.
Obviously I am learning on the job, which for me seems to be the only way I learn. Up until now I have come up against a whole lot of grief (z-indexes are the bane of my existance....) but have managed to muddle through. However now I am really stumped.

Here is the CSS I am using, to make vertical text. It works in IE, but not in netscape. I really don't want to have to use an image file unless I have to, as the page is a gallery and will already have a number of images on it. I want to keep loading time to a minimum.

.titlebox {
position: absolute;
writing-mode: tb-rl;
filter: flipv fliph;

top: 150px;
height: auto;
width: 25px;
font-weight: bold;
font-size: 54px;
}

As I say, it works for IE, but not netscape. Does anyone know a way to get vertical text in netscape? I have already set up a netscape css file using a script to check the browser type. So ideal would be something to put in that css to override the above.
Thanks.

Vertical text in IE ok, but not in netscape.....

That is proprietary IE-only code. Mozilla adheres
to the W3C specification so it ignores such non-
standard css. I think there is a standard way to
turn text, but I'm not familiar with it and it's
probably in the yet-to-be-released CSS-3 spec.

It's a cinch IE does not support it.

I just put a break after each letter...
