The adoption of the stress-majorization method from multi-dimensional scaling into graph layout has provided an improved mathematical basis and better convergence properties for so-called ``force-directed placement`` techniques. In this paper we give an algorithm for augmenting such stress-majorization techniques with orthogonal ordering constraints and we demonstrate several graph-drawing applications where this class of constraints can be very useful.
