  I have a table with a lot of small columns (a dozen of columns with

  I tried reference-orientation="90", both on the fo:table-cell and its
inner fo:block, but the text is still horizontal within the cell.

reference-orientation isn't supposed to work on table-cell because that construct is only used to group content, not to create any areas itself.

reference-orientation isn't supposed to work on block because that construct creates a normal area not a reference area.

You need to use a block-container to get what you want:

  <page-sequence master-reference="frame">
    <flow flow-name="frame-body" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
      <block>This is a test</block>
            <block-container reference-orientation="90">

I use Fop 0.95. Do I use the wrong property?

I don't have FOP so I cannot answer if it is conformant or not.

I hope this helps.
