'valign' - Vertical Alignment in HTML Table


How To Control Vertical Alignment?

✍: FYIcenter.com


By default, text in all table cells are aligned to the top vertically. If you want to control vertical alignment yourself, you need to use the "valign" attribute in a "tr" element or a "td" element:

  • <tr valign="top|middle|bottom"> - Set vertical alignment to the top, middel, or bottom for all cells in the row.
  • <td valign="top|middle|bottom"> - Set vertical alignment to the top, middle, bottom for this cell.

Below is a tutorial example of "valign" attributes:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  <title>Verical Alignment</title>
  <h4>Online Order</h4>
  <table border="1" width="250">
   <td align="right">Qty</td>
   <td align="right">Price</td>
  <tr valign="bottom">
   <td>Email account with 100MB storage,
    Webmail interface, POP3/IMAP access, and 
    anti-spam protection</td>
   <td align="right">10</td>
   <td align="right">$9.90</td>
  <tr valign="middle">
   <td>FYIcenter.com ad space 
    of 90x30 pixel banner</td>
   <td align="right">1</td>
   <td align="right">$99.00</td>
   <td>1 year access to the VIP members area with no 
    hidden fees, and 100% money back guarantee</td>
   <td align="right" valign="top">1</td>
   <td align="right" valign="top">$199.00</td>
