<thead> with row scope?

Here my question: is there any way to define a table with a <thead> not at the top of the table, but at the left (or right) side? if not, is there any css mechanism to convert the table, like a kind of rotation?

You would need to use CSS for that. Which is expected because thead is about structure and the left side is a visual concept. Here is an example of the CSS.

Thanks! I supossed that it's a CSS issue because is only representational, not semantical.
