Any angle can be determined. You just have to give the exact measurements. But for what you are doing,...just scribe the brace on the gate...that will give you the exact angle you need...

Thatís way too easy and leaves nothing left to debate.

At the hinge end of the gate, should the angle brace be at the top or the bottom?

The bottom but what does that have to do with finding the angle.

The angle is not a debateable topic...it is what it is. How to FIND the angle could be debated.

This is a public forum, the day of the week is a debatable subject.

Right, that's the easiest way. I guess my question goes beyond a simple gate for other spots where it's not easy to scribe the brace or other work from behind.

What you would do is take into account each individual circumstance and come up with a solution on a case by base basis.
I'm a little confused, now that I see the picture of the gate. I don't know how a thin guide wire and a turn buckle will be more obtrusive then a thick diagonal piece of wood (or 2). From a design standpoint in a deck railing with only horizontals and verticals I would minimize the diagonal visuals.
But, it's your deck.

No problem...all you need is the height...width and calculator. It's that simple. I asked you before what the measurements are. If you don't tell us... you'll never get your answer.

Just wanted to see if things were square with the corner to corner measure.
