Default Rotating Text Within a Table Cell

In HTML, is it possible to rotate text (90 degrees left or right) within a table cell? If so, how is that accomplished?

Ideally, I would like to join a number of cells in a column and have the text rotated therein. Consider a monthly calendar whose cells are the numbered days of the week with an eighth column where the month is spelled but rotated.

Not in CSS2 or non-CSS, so the only alternative would be to make a graphic (eek).

I think the letters ought to be the right way up
M
A
Y
and so on. This would not be difficult.

I would prefer in this instance to turn the letters to the left 90 degrees. How might that be done in HTML 4 (no CSS)?

As Lois said, it cannot be done.

What would it take to achieve a 90 degree rotation of text within joined table cells?

There is no way to do that I know of — except to create images of the rotated text and place them in the cells.
