This code will produce a vertical line with an arrow at its lower end  
pointing downwards and a text "Instructions" written on the line in  
upward direction (rotated by 90° in counter-clockwise direction from  
the horizontal, reading direction in contrary to the arrow's  
direction, kind of bottom-up) that the line will get rubbed out along  

Simpdftex, pdfLaTeX, and XeLaTeX produce this in their PDF output.  
When I try to interpret the DVI output from LaTeX I seem to miss the  
rotation of the text and I also seem to miss the co-ordinates of the  
text's starting point. But obviously simpdftex produces correct  
output. So me and xdvi must be faulty, not interpreting the PS code...
