fo:table-cell vertical text

I would like to show the text "Name" vertical in my table-cell instead of horizontal. How do I do that??
     <fo:table-cell border-right="solid" display-align="center" border-width="1pt">
         <fo:block margin-left="1mm">Name</fo:block>

Best regards/

You can use reference-orientation attribute on the fo:block-container, something like this.

      <fo:table-cell border-right="solid" display-align="center" border-width="1pt">
         <fo:block-container reference-orientation="90">
            <fo:block margin-left="1mm">Name</fo:block>

Sure, you might have the height & width & text-align to take care according to need.

Thanks for your response. I tried to use the block-container but the Name disappeared in my table-cell. I even tried to remove my special attributes like this:
  <fo:block-container reference-orientation="90">      

But the same thing appears, the cell stays empty.

That does not sound probable. It might be badly formatted, but disappeared?! Are there error/warning messages? Also do you mean without those block-container etc, your original lines show Name?

I get an error message:
[ERROR] property - "reference-orientation" is not implemented yet.

I use Fop 1.0.

>I use Fop 1.0.
You bet... It is implemented even before that version and 1.0 even fixes some bugs.

You were right. I was redirecting myself to a fop2.bat in an older version of fop than 1.0. Thank you. It works well now!!
