Table cell with writing-mode:vertical-rl applied
Applying writing-mode:vertical-rl to td does not seem to be working. I have attached a sample HTML file that reproduce the issue with the Nightly build.
I then tried to put <p> inside td and applied writing-mode:vertical-rl, which made the text vertical but its position isn't correct.
Both rows renders as I expect in IE9.
I tried this on Safari and Nightly build on Lion, and also on Safari and Chrome on Windows. All resulted the same.
This is my first try to put a bug in webkit, so please excuse me if I made something incorrect, and I apologize in advance for any troubles I may have caused. I tried to look for dup bugs, 46997 may be related but I couldn't figure out if this is dup of the bug or not.
<td> with writing-mode:vertical-rl fails in Windows on Chrome 16 as well.
<td> with writing-mode (old IE lingo) works in IE9, but renders the <td> with the wrong height (if the <tr> is taller than the writing-mode cell needs, it shortens the cell - easily revealed by putting a border on cells and making a tall <td>); please make sure the <td> maintains the same row height as other cells when writing mode is changed.

writing-mode:vertical-rl test on td and th tags.
writing-mode should work on <th> and <td> elements, per http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-writing-modes/#writing-mode and http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-writing-modes/#writing-mode (working draft and editors draft), which excludes table row groups, table column groups, table rows, and table columns, but not table header cells or table data cells.

Note, IE supports this. http://jsbin.com/ayeyag/4
2 additional reduced and self-explanatory tests:
2 additional tests (testing a table with realistical tabular data; both border-collapse models tested):
The tester must have "Liberation Sans" font or Arial font installed on his/her system.
Note that Firefox fails to render 'text-align: left' correctly for cells in orthogonal flow.
