One of the cool things about Oracle APEX is ability to embed HTML tags into everything you could display. This includes simple HTML tags like
Add a break
<font color="#FF0000">Employee Name</font>
Or more complex one like –
Rotate 90 degree vertically (work with IE only)
<div style="writing-mode: tb-rl">Employee Name</div>

That’s a good tip, didn’t know that with the 90 degree html tag.
That could sometimes save a lot of space.
PS: BTW, I noticed that you are still pointing to inside-apex.blogspot.com, it’s now http://www.inside-oracle-apex.com
Thanks for stopping by and pointing that out. I just updated the link to reflect the new URL.
Also keep in mind that the rotate 90 degrees will only work in IE > 7. For & or lower you would need to use this nasty hack
Of course that should read “For 7 and lower….”.
I’ve not have a chance to test with later versions of IE. Thanks for testing and pointing that out.
