font that displays well at 45 degrees

Anyone have any suggestions of a font that will display nicely when rotated through 45 degrees (we're doing it using the html5 canvas element)? I'm guessing something with lots of straight horizontals? However, we've tried a few different sans/gothic fonts with poor results.

Sounds like a job for Brothers from Downer/Emigre.

Have you tried Eurostile extended? I've always liked it as it has a modern feel.

A screen grab from InDesign.
I don't know how that would render as a rotated web font.

What's temperature got to do with it?

You need traps, coz of the swelling. Remember, he's in the UK.
