Html – How to vertical center text next to an image in html/css


What is the best and easiest way to vertically center text that's next to an image in html? Needs to be browser version/type agnostic. A pure html/CSS solution.

Best Solution

This might get you started.

I always fall back on this solution. Not too hack-ish and gets the job done.

EDIT: I should point out that you might achieve the effect you want with the following code (forgive the inline styles; they should be in a separate sheet). It seems that the default alignment on an image (baseline) will cause the text to align to the baseline; setting that to middle gets things to render nicely, at least in FireFox 3.

    <img src="" style="vertical-align: middle;" width="100px"/>
    <span style="vertical-align: middle;">Here is some text.</span>
