    You mean union and intersection? \cup and \cap

    no no. what Im trying to achieve is like a commutative diagram but with with "subset" symbols instead of arrros. So for example, one of the ros may be A\subseteq B. I need the analogue of this but for columns. The \cup and \cap sublos wont do, for they dont have a slash next to them, indicating the possibility of equality...

    Maybe you should use the rotating package for LaTeX.

    How do I do that?? Is there a specific functon that allow me to rotate any given symbol??

    Thank you ver much for your help..However, for some reason when I try to use the rotating package, it simply doesnt work. I type the command to rotate (after loading the package) and it simply doesn't rotate, it just prints the symbol (or any other text when I try) normally. I don't get an error message either. If comment out the line \usepackage{rotating} then I do get an error which I guess means it recognise the command \begin{rotating}...

    has any ever had a similar problem?

    It might be that the dvi viewer doesn't recognize what is happening.
    Try to convert the dvi to ps or pdf, then view accordingly.
