Hi Doug,

thank you again! I found a thread of September 2017 which discusses
rotated text in tbl cells, using a postscript solution (Tadziu Hoffmann
provided the answer).

Currently I am experimenting with a different path by placing a ps image
of the horizontal bracket in my table.

I'll keep you informed.

Let's assume I get these braces working, is there any chance to use
PS to rotate them in a tbl cell without breaking everything?

I've done that quite easily with PostScript from a non-groff source.
The ericky part was automating it so I had to do it only once rather
than once per run as the document evolved. It may be somewhat harder
with the higher-level PostScript encoding that groff produces.
