    Just tip your head 45 degrees to the right and 'read' the letters that appear!

    Ahhh got it now. Thanks Roger.

    Maybe it's something to do with me being used to reading engineering drawings which generally read from bottom to top. Reading text from top to bottom always looks wrong to me now...maybe that's why I didn't see it :-?

    Why do they read from the bottom to the top?

    Because they do! Thats the British (and ISO) standard.


    What I actually meant was that if text is written vertically it reads
    y
    a
    w

    s
    i
    h
    t

    and not

    t
    h
    i
    s

    w
    a
    y
    (but the text is rotated in the correct direction obviously...)

    Anyway back on topic....
