CSS – Text Rotation

If you’re trying to turn some text using rotation for elements, such as rotating text 90 degrees clockwise/counterclockwise then you’re at the right place.

So how can we achieve this? Simple! Check out the below CSS which gives you cross-browser compatibility:-


.rotate {

  transform: rotate(-90deg);


  /* Legacy vendor prefixes that you probably don't need... */

  /* Safari */
  -webkit-transform: rotate(-90deg);

  /* Firefox */
  -moz-transform: rotate(-90deg);

  /* IE */
  -ms-transform: rotate(-90deg);

  /* Opera */
  -o-transform: rotate(-90deg);

  /* Internet Explorer */
  filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(rotation=3);

}

The rotation property of Internet Explorer’s BasicImage filter can accept one of four values: 0, 1, 2, or 3 which will rotate the element 0, 90, 180 or 270 degrees respectively.

Check out the following CodePen to see this in action!
