I have tested the textUpsideDown definition from
with three browsers:
  Firefox 8.0.1,
  Opera 10.52;
  Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.187702
The latter asks for the user’s consent to interpret scripts,
before it applies the .txtUpsideDown class definition.
Cf. attached source file, and attached screen shot for the results.

Apparently, none if these browsers provides the appropriate
room for the text set upside down; hence, the txtUpsideDown
class should be amended to comply with this shortcoming.
However, I have not found any e-mail address of its author,
“thatraja”, and I am not willing to sign on to,
Twitter, Facebook, or any other community, just to inform him.

As <> already has observed,
the upside-down text either appears below the current line,
or overlaps other text in the current line. My test case
shows, that in the former case, the upside-down text will
overlap the following line (in this test a horizontal ruler).

Best wishes,
