TEXT - Vertical Orientation - Adobe Indesign Windows

Is there no vertical orientation for text in InDesign CS2, like there is in Illustrator? I created some text in Illustrator in the orientation that I wanted, but when I copy/paste it over to InDesign, it is not editable. Please tell me I'm overlooking something....

    Not unless you've bought InDesign-J, the Japanese version of InDesign!

    Instead, create the vertical text in Illustator, save as an AI file and place in InDesign.

    Well... I guess I'll have to change my design ideas so that I don't need so much of that type of text. Where I absolutely need it, I have made a very thin textbox, and just hit <enter> after each letter. It gives me the effect I want, but in a very 'manual' kind of way.

    Probably not. It's possible to do text on a path, place it vertically, use 'Stair Step' option, but there are spacing problems (word space is not wide - or high - enough, for instance) that I assume are not present in Illustrator.
