Hi Troy,

you can define macro (you need admin permission), go to General configuration -> User Macros -> Create a User Macro.

Enter your Macro Name and Macro Title. In Macro Body Processing select "Rendered" option. Into Template paste following code:

## Macro: rotate-table-headers
## Macro title: A macro for rotating all the headers in a table
## Macro has a body: Y
## Body processing: n/a
## Output: HTML
## Developed by: David Simpson <>
## Date created: 2013-11-20
## Installed by: My Name

## @param height:title=Height|type=string|required=true|desc=e.g.100px

/** @see: */
.rotate-table th div.tablesorter-header-inner, td.confluenceTd {
-webkit-transform: rotate(-90deg);
-moz-transform: rotate(-90deg);
-ms-transform: rotate(-90deg);
-o-transform: rotate(-90deg);
transform: rotate(-90deg);

filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(rotation=3); /* Internet Explorer */

.rotate-table th, td {
height: $paramheight;


<div class="rotate-table">$body</div>

In Confluence page, use this macro and into body paste your table. It should lead into following formatting:

How we can achieve this for a particular  TD and not for all TD's?
