Problem with viewing/printing rotated/vertically aligned text

Hi all,

I am printing a text on to a screen rotated by 270 degrees. I am using the following code snippet. The text appears/prints fine on few systems, but appears bloated/blurred on few others.
We are using IE 6.0 on Windows.
Please let me know, what could be the problem.

Code:
-----
<span id="wLoad" STYLE="position:absolute;top:445px;filter rogid XImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(rotation=3)">
<B> <%= Constants.WORKLOAD %> </B>
</span>


Thanks in advance for your time.

Ravi.

The only real way to get text to look right at an angle and print is to use images.

Eric,

Thanks for the response. Am not sure, if we want to go with an Image.

Though have not tried to analyze how exactly the code/filter is working, but from the code snippet I think its converting the text to an image.

But The code works/prints perfectly on Mien and a few other windows systems on/from IE, but is shown/prints(in IE) bloated on/from other window systems.

Still looking for a solution/sugestion about any known problem with the IE that I need to take care of.

Thanks.

I see in my earlier post, my code snippet didn't get displayed properly.

--Below is my code again. I hope it gets displayed fine this time.--

<span id="schedule" STYLE="position:absolute;top:173px;filter: progid: DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(rotation=3)">
<B> <%= Constants.SCHEDULING %> </B>
</span>
