Rotate cell heading text like in Excel
I am migrating Excel Documents into Line of Business application into web pages. 
Which means everything excel can do, my client expect the telerik controls to do!
On either a RadGrid or RadGantt  I would like to be able to rotate the headings just like in Excel. 
An example is a heading like 'Days' but the actual value in that column is no bigger than 99.  
Another example if that the heading has a question, and the cell a check box.

If the text rotation the CSS supports is okay, you can use that to rotate any text in any heading.

div.RadGantt .rgtTreelist .radGridHeader th {
    vertical-align: middle;
    white-space: normal

    .RadGantt .rgtTreelist .radGridHeader th .k-link {
        max-width: 40px;
        white-space: normal;
        transform: rotate(-45deg);

For more custom headings, you can follow the templates feedback item here:

I totally agree with this option.
