    Ah, sorry.

    If you use @greybeard's suggestion that you never turn a tensioned fence around a corner post but tie it off (*) at the post every time it changes direction, it wouldn't matter if the corner is 90 degrees or something else. Doing it that way means the tension on the fence is pulling in only 1 direction and you have already braced the post for that direction. If you carry the fence around the corner, the tension on the 2 sides of the pole will want to pull the post inward.

    * tying off meaning you wrap each horizontal wire (under tension) around the post and tie it back to itself.
