RE: [css-d] vertical align and doctype

Sent by RUST Randal on 29 January 2002 07:07


The easiest way that I have come across for properly achieving the vertical
alignment of text in a table data cell is to do this:

----------

td {
	font: 12px arial;
	line-height: 24px; }

----------

You just set the value of your line-height to double that of the text.

Hum. If I understand all this correctly, you can align something in 
a box by playing with the margin (top, bottom). Aligning something 
inline is more tricky, I've successfully aligned images inline in a 
<div> or a <p> by using {vertical-align:middle}. This works fine in 
all version 5+ browsers. Aligning words should be possible, but I 
had problems with it in IE5.5Windows. haven't tried since then, so 
I'm not sure about IE6.

Regards,

Philippe
