Rotated text in graphics

On page 540 of the Mma 3.0 book is an example of rotated text. The input is

Show[Graphics[
    Text[StyleForm["Some Text",FontSize -> 14,FontWeight -> "Bold"],{2,2},{-1,
        0},{0,1}]],Frame -> True]

In the book, the output cell shows the words "Some Text" rotated as if the
whole block were rotated. Thus, by turning your head a bit, it reads
easily.

When I do this command on my Macintosh, the text show up like this:

t
x
e
t

e
m
o
S

That is, the direction of printing is rotated, but each individual letter
is unrotated.

How can I get Mathematica to rotate text the way shows it in the book?
