Usage

 ===Deprecated===

This property has been dropped from the current version of CSS Writing Modes specification. You are encouraged to manipulate an element's writing mode via the writing-mode property instead.

Notes

Remarks

In vertical layout, text lines are rotated 90° clockwise. Images are not rotated, but tables are. Box layout in vertical orientations is exactly analogous to layout in the horizontal orientation: width, height, top, bottom, right, and left do not rotate with the text. Only one block progression is active at a time; these values cannot be combined. See -ms-writing-mode for additive block progression values. This property is based on the block-progression property of the CSS3 Text Layout module.

Syntax

-ms-block-progression: tb | rl | bt | lr
