Hi,

the answer is quit easy. Rotation of text needs definetly PostScript. 
NextStep has not X Window, not MS-Windows API it has DisplayPostScript
as build-in as graphical interface. So NextStep can easyly perform
the rotation of texts. All other systems have *not* the possibility
of displaying text other than in horizontal direction. 

For the display (in the frontend) Mathematica over comes this limitation
of the most graphical user interfaces by formating the rotated

"speed (s/m)" 

string as

(
m
/
s
)

d
e
e
p
s

simply because it has no fonts with rotated letters.
The printing on a PostScript device will
show the correct rotated string.

How ever this need a PostScript device not a GUI. Print
Your graphics and all will be right.

Hope that helps
  Jens
