Default Vertical text function style behavior

Good day - I have a very weird issue. My objective to to get vertical text displaying with the string starting from the bottom up. This style:

.vertical { writing-mode: tb-rl; filter: flipV flipH; font-size: 14px;font-family: Arial, Verdana; text-align: left; font-weight: strong; white-space:nowrap;}

works fine on screen and the print preview also. however the printing is very odd. Some strings appear as they should but several appear like they have been italicized and are illegible.

NOTE - I did have this intermitant issue which has been posted in the CSS section - Vertical Text Style Not Printing

So as a work around I done this:

Function vertText(theText)
Dim strCount
theText = theText & "" ' fix null issues
For strCount = 1 to Len(theText)
If Mid(theText, strCount, 1) = " " Then
vertText = vertText & Mid(theText, strCount, 1) & "&nbsp;<br>"
vertText = vertText & Mid(theText, strCount, 1) & "<br>"
End If
End Function

A bit of a hack which as you could imagine looks a little odd. The word starts from the top down which is not ideal. hyphens end up looking like minus signs, the sapcing between the letters is a bit much and the alignment of letters is weird.

Any suggestions would be great?
