After seeing this message by PompeyBoy3, I wanted the same in CSS, so I have tried & am now posting here.


<title>Text Up side down</title>
<style type="text/css">
	filter:  progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(rotation=2);  /* IE6,IE7 */
	ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(rotation=2)"; /* IE8 */
	-moz-transform: rotate(-180deg);  /* FF3.5+ */
	-o-transform: rotate(-180deg);  /* Opera 10.5 */
	-webkit-transform: rotate(-180deg);  /* Safari 3.1+, Chrome */
	position: absolute; 
<div class="txtUpsideDown">Test message</div>
