    Hi, all

    When Japanese (and, I imagine, other East Asian languages) is written
    vertically, certain characters are rotated by 90 degrees. Examples: the
    parenthesis-like characters in the block at U+3000, and U+30FC.

    Does the Unicode character database include information on which characters
    are rotated in vertical text? If not, does anyone know of a definitive list?
