If you need something more visually perfect than this then you will
need to define (probably for each class of letter shapes and each font)
precisely what you do mean by 'rotate' and 'invert' for a glyph (easy
ones to start with(??:-) are '=''-' '+'.

In other words: where is the 'correct baseline' of the glyph 'inverted-B'?
Where did the font designer intend it to be?  Would you dare ask her?

Have fun!
