Thanks Gary, unfortunately what we are trying to do is actually rotate the
text 90 degrees counter clockwise. What you suggest would be really easy to
accomplish, but not as easy to read. If the columns were going to stay the
same then we could just use images to accomplish this but there are going to
be more columns added for quite some time (until the product is stabilized).
Anyway, thanks for the suggestion.
Anyone else have an idea?

I don't know what kind of database you have the information stored in, but
can you either store it as, or format after retrieval with a <br> after each
character so that it would display as:
