# [texhax] Rotate text

```graphicx provides the \rotate command

rotations only work on boxes so you need to wrap the paragraph in a \parbox or the minipage env

Subject: [texhax] Rotate text

I want to have a paragraph of text rotated by 180 degrees so that it is
easy to read only by rotating the page by
180 degrees.   I'm using pdflatex.   It seems that this should be
possible, but I don't find reference to it in the
LaTeX manual, which is all I have with me during a string of moves on
the way to being back in a house with space for
all my reference books re TeX.

Is there a simple solution to this?  Thanks in advance for any help.
