A div can't be rotated. You can only go horizontal or vertical hence why its called the box model. To create a diagonal look you will need to use images.

ok, so i guess i could rotate an image inside a DIV. I could work around that if i knew how...

For some reason I think you can use an IE filter for that (although that might only be 90 degree rotations). Otherwise, you could use SVG and a <foreignObject> tag, but you wouldn't find support for rotations on that anywhere in supported browser releases.

I think the canvas element WhatWG defines can do it in too.

Yup IE has filter which can be used to rotate, using the BasicImage filter. eg.
BUT - that only supports 90, 180, and 270 degree rotations, so it will not place things at an angle.
Using images is the best way.

think you can rotate by a float value and offset the object but the rotation point and math is a problem but trial and error may surfice for a set rotation.
