css, table with vertical headers

I'm trying to build a table in HTML having its header vertical.
I found exactly what I was looking for there:
http://codepen.io/chriscoyier/pen/Fapif

But I cannot reproduce it, and I don't really get why.

My code is:

<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">

.table-header-rotated {
border-collapse: collapse;
.csstransforms & td {
width: 30px;
}
.no-csstransforms & th {
padding: 5px 10px;
}
td {
text-align: center;
padding: 10px 5px;
border: 1px solid #ccc;
}
.csstransforms & th.rotate {
height: 140px;
white-space: nowrap;
// Firefox needs the extra DIV for some reason, otherwise the text disappears if you rotate
> div {
transform:
// Magic Numbers
translate(25px, 51px)
// 45 is really 360-45
rotate(315deg);
width: 30px;
}
> div > span {
border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc;
padding: 5px 10px;
}
}
th.row-header {
padding: 0 10px;
border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc;
}
}

</style>
</head>
<body>
<table class="table table-header-rotated">
<thead>
<tr>
<!-- First column header is not rotated -->
<th></th>
<!-- Following headers are rotated -->
<th class="rotate"><div><span>Column header 1</span></div></th>
<th class="rotate"><div><span>Column header 2</span></div></th>
<th class="rotate"><div><span>Column header 3</span></div></th>
<th class="rotate"><div><span>Column header 4</span></div></th>
<th class="rotate"><div><span>Column header 5</span></div></th>
<th class="rotate"><div><span>Column header 6</span></div></th>
</tr>
</thead>
<tbody>
<tr>
<th class="row-header">Row header 1</th>
<td><input checked="checked" name="column1[]" type="radio" value="row1-column1"></td>
<td><input checked="checked" name="column2[]" type="radio" value="row1-column2"></td>
<td><input name="column3[]" type="radio" value="row1-column3"></td>
<td><input name="column4[]" type="radio" value="row1-column4"></td>
<td><input name="column5[]" type="radio" value="row1-column5"></td>
<td><input name="column6[]" type="radio" value="row1-column6"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th class="row-header">Row header 2</th>
<td><input name="column1[]" type="radio" value="row2-column1"></td>
<td><input name="column2[]" type="radio" value="row2-column2"></td>
<td><input checked="checked" name="column3[]" type="radio" value="row2-column3"></td>
<td><input checked="checked" name="column4[]" type="radio" value="row2-column4"></td>
<td><input name="column5[]" type="radio" value="row2-column5"></td>
<td><input name="column6[]" type="radio" value="row2-column6"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th class="row-header">Row header 3</th>
<td><input name="column1[]" type="radio" value="row3-column1"></td>
<td><input name="column2[]" type="radio" value="row3-column2"></td>
<td><input name="column3[]" type="radio" value="row3-column3"></td>
<td><input name="column4[]" type="radio" value="row3-column4"></td>
<td><input checked="checked" name="column5[]" type="radio" value="row3-column5"></td>
<td><input checked="checked" name="column6[]" type="radio" value="row3-column6"></td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>

Answer

This will work, apply it

th.rotate {
  /* Something you can count on */
  height: 140px;
  white-space: nowrap;
}

th.rotate > div {
  transform: 
    /* Magic Numbers */
    translate(25px, 51px)
    /* 45 is really 360 - 45 */
    rotate(315deg);
  width: 30px;
}
th.rotate > div > span {
  border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc;
  padding: 5px 10px;
}
/* These aren't needed and will be weird if transforms don't work */
.csstransforms & th.rotate {
  height: 140px;
  white-space: nowrap;
}
