#11563 closed defect (patchwelcome)

IE VML text letters rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise

Reported by: elbeau Owned by: Eugene Lazutkin

Description (last modified by Eugene Lazutkin)

In two places in vml.js you will see the line:["v-rotate-letters"]=s.rotated;

Apparently, no matter what the value of s.rotated is, if the v-rotate-letters attribute exists, then IE applies it as if v-rotate-letters is true;

In other words, changing the line of code to say:["v-rotate-letters"]=false;

...does NOTHING to fix the problem, you must:

if (s.rotated) {["v-rotate-letters"]=s.rotated;

or IE will always print your letters rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise.

Oops...forgot to enclose it in a code block...the line actually looks like:["v-rotate-letters"]=s.rotated;

Given that VML only impacts IE8, and that no patch has emerged in 5+ years, I'm closing as patchwelcome. If someone wants to provide a patch that reliably removes the attribute, please reopen and provide a pull request per our current contributing guidelines,
