While editing a 2-D drawing I accidentally did something that rotated the workplane, and can't find any instructions on how to reverse this. What's the secret?

Press Ctrl+Alt+W to go to the World Workplane, then press Ctr+W to go to World Plan view.

You probably bumped the mouse wheel.
Under options, tool bars and menus, additional device set up, you can change your mouse settings so that the wheel Pans when selected - instead of Dynamic examine. For me panning is less irritating then rotating the screen.

Thanks Nikki

That might well explain it - I've changed the setting as you suggested - certainly don't want accidental rotation!
