You can rotate text in Mathematica by wrapping it with Rotate and specifying an angle and center of rotation. As rotation may cause the rotated text to shift horizontally and vertically, the center of rotation does not stay fixed. The height of the center of rotation above the baseline of the text, however, is fixed.
