Start angle for pie chart
Start angle would help to rotate the chart for better label arrangement in some situations
Completed as of Highcharts 3.0

Note: Setting a negative rotation value can mess with the labels. I saw this trying to rotate by -30 degrees... Ex: http://jsfiddle.net/dryswabbie/2hfen/

Wonderful news, works just as expected; thank you!

It's rather pathetic that this has not been implemented yet.
I've been reading the API up and down for this - just what I need =)
In my case I'm rotating different charts based on the value of the first point, as a "work around" l've had to split the point in two and ad one of the pieces as a "last point" - using the same colors and tempering with the tooltip/ labels takes me pretty far - but as soon as I ad a border the end result is really not as nice =(
Consider the following data for a pie chart:
data: [ ['Firefox', 99], ['Others', 1] ]
Now take a look at the resulting image. What can we do to avoid such an ugly chart?
Yes, an option would be to rotate the chart by 30 to 45 degree.
BETTER if highcharts script can do this AUTOMATICALLY.
