Rotate the graphics without rotate the text in SVG

First, this is a SVG issue, not 100% of XML issue. But I can't find
SVG group to post this. Since SVG is XML file, I post here hopefully
someone know both SVG and XML can help.

Here is my SVG lines

line.blue {stroke:blue;st roke-width:3;}
line.bluedash {stroke:blue;st roke-width:1;stroke-dasharray: 9,5;}

<g id="dashLine">
<desc>Dash Line</desc>
<line class="bluedash " x1="0" y1="-280" x2="-280" y2="0" />
<g id="arrow" stroke="blue" transform="tran slate(0,0)">
<line class="blue" x1="0" y1="-280" x2="0" y2="280" />
<use xlink:href="#da shLine" />
<use xlink:href="#da shLine" transform="scal e(-1,1)" />
<text x="0" y="-280">Arrow</text>


<use xlink:href="#ar row" transform="rota te(180, 0, 0)" />

Now, I rotate the arrow by 60 degrees, but the text also rotate
( read upside down).

I would like rotate the arrow in any degrees, but the text remain
zero degree rotation.

Any idea how do I resolve this problem?
Thank Q very much in advance!

There is the svg-developers list on yahoogroups.com .

Then you have to organize your document differently, for example, you
can put the arrow and the text in separate groups, and rotate only the
group you want to have rotated.
