Vertical Align

The vertical align CSS property describes the cell box of the table and an inline alignment vertically. This property is a self-explanatory and an essential property in CSS. But, it is not easy to implement for many beginners.

Working

  • The vertical align property can be used for inline-block or inline elements.
  • These properties do not affect the content of the element, but its alignment (excluding table-cells).
  • It also does not affect the table cell itself, but the content of the cell when we use this property on any table cell.
