    Well I'm sure others will probably chime in with better ideas
based on CSS style sheets but here is this one.

    Why not set the rotation and the font on the text item:

<svg ...>
  <path d="...">
  <path d="...">
  <path d="...">

  <!-- Text rotated 90 deg -->
  <text transform="rotate(90)" font-size="24" font-family="Times">
        Hello World

  <!-- Lines NOT rotated 90 deg -->
  <path d="...">
  <path d="...">


    If you have a group of text then you can do this on a <g> element
as well, but be aware that anything in the G will be affected.
