In my real app the text messages that are running vertically (ie the ones that are at 
12 o'clock and 6 o'clock) actually get drawn at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock. The idea is 
to put labels on either side  
of a pie chart or other type of chart.

I need to apply the transform in order to tell the Graphics2D object to draw the text 
running vertically.

So then Acrobat can draw the text at 45, 135, 225 and 315 degrees? (ie 1:30, 4:30, 
7:30, 10:30) I don't see any text at those positions in the textAsShapes=false version.

I will try a later version of FOP and Batik. I'll get the latest stuff from CVS and 
try it again today. 

Also, I have Acrobat 4.05 coming as an update but Adobe says it will take 4-6 weeks to 
get it. I guess I could go get the Acrobat Reader plug-in for v5 and try that.
