If you are using FOSI and if graphic entities are used in the document, the graphic can be suppressed and the graphic entity name can be fillvalled into a Putgraph category that has the desired rotation.Note that the graphic entity and notation do not have to be declared in the FOSI.
For example:<e-i-c gi="graphic"><charlist inherit="1"></charlist><att><specval attname="print-only" attloc="system-var" attval="yes"><charsubset charsubsetref="SUPPRESS"></charsubset></att><att><specval attname="print-only" attloc="system-var" attval="yes"><fillval attname="entityref" fillcat="putgraph" fillchar="graphname"><charsubset><putgraph rotation="90"><subchars>...</subchars></putgraph></charsubset></att></e-i-c>Good luck!

I've tried it, but illustrations don't rotate. I don't know, where I've done mistake.



<xs:element name="graphic" type="graphicElemType"/">




<xs:element maxoccurs="unbounded" minoccurs="0" ref="hotspot"/">




<xs:attribute ref="applicRefId"/">














<usetext source="%}\DimenH=\ht\BoxA\vbox{\vskip\wd\BoxA\special{pub:rotate90}\unvbox\BoxA\vskip" -\dimenh}%&quot;placemnt="after"></usetext>

I assumed rotation would work because scaling works. But when I tried it now, the graphic did not rotate. That seems like a bug to me, and I would encourage you to report it.
In the meantime, I found a way to make it work.In addition to setting the rotation characteristic on Putgraph, set scalefit to 1 and specify width as the column width. For example:

<att><specval attname="print-only" attloc="system-var" attval="yes"/"><fillval attname="entityref" attloc="graphic" fillcat="putgraph"fillchar="graphname"/"><charsubset charsubsetref="SUPPRESS"><putgraph width="37pi" scalefit="1" rotation="180"></putgraph></charsubset></att>

That worked for me in 6.0.
Good luck!Suzanne
