    I have a chart with 90-degree rotated category axis.
    categoryAxis:{
        categories:names,
        labels:{rotation:90}
    },

    This works fine in FireFox 12, but in IE9 (64 bit) running on Windows7 I am getting hierogliphics. I have done nothing special with the font settings in the browser, so it seems the default for charts is an Arial or Verndana type font.

    Horizontal labeling is working fine. (the data is remotely driven, so creating a JsFiddle would take a little work).

    Hello Yechezkal,

    Indeed, this is unknown issue. Could you please provide some screenshots, which illustrate the described problem? Thank you in advance.

    Also, here is my test jsFiddle example

    Kind regards,

    I am not seeing this with your JsFiddle, Since it is only showing up in my project, I suspect if is font related. I will see if I can create a JsFiddle that duplicates this.

    Screen shot is attached.

    The first one is FireFox the second is IE..

    Hi Yechezkal,

    Thank you for the screenshots. Could you please check the mode of the browser in which you render the chart - it is possible to render it in the Compatibility mode? If you need the chart to be correctly rendered in this mode you could use the following code snippet:

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" >

    Wow, you are really sharp!

    Until you mentioned it, I had no idea that our I.T. department had modified everyone's IE browser to use compatibility mode for all intranet sites. (there is no reason for this). I turned it off and things are working perfectly.
