How to set vertical-align of span to middle of a div

Question by StevenChow

I test vertical-align with a simple html code, but it doesn’t work

<div style="height:45px; border: solid 1px black;">
    <strong style="vertical-align:bottom;">

Plz help me!

Answer by Starx

This is how you do it

<div style="height:45px; border: solid 1px black; display: table;">
    <strong style="vertical-align:bottom; display: table-cell;">


As I have mentioned before, vertical aligns are very tricky. For this to work, like it did on table, set the parent container to display as table and the inner <div>s or elements to display as table-cell
