I'd like to rotate and mirror text left-right in Math.SE, as plain text or inside formulae. What I tried is from a TeX post or this one like:


but all I get is

$\require{rotating}$ $\require{graphicx}$ $\rotatebox{180}{Text}$

If possible, I'd prefer a solution that does not use special charactes like $\forall$ ($\forall$) for an unside-down $A$.

Combinations of rotations of 180° and mirror about vertical axis will do for me.

Essentially from the post linked by hardmath, Is it possible for me to rotate symbols and operations?

Horizontal mirror: F\mapsto\;\style{display: inline-block; transform: scale(-1,1)}{F} gives $$F\mapsto\;\style{display: inline-block; transform: scale(-1,1)}{F}$$ Vertical mirror:F\mapsto\;\style{display: inline-block; transform: scale(1,-1)}{F} gives $$F\mapsto\;\style{display: inline-block; transform: scale(1,-1)}{F}$$ Rotation by 180º:F\mapsto\;\style{display: inline-block; transform: rotate(180deg)}{F} gives $$F\mapsto\;\style{display: inline-block; transform: rotate(180deg)}{F}$$ (or alternatively scale(-1,-1))
