It's a multiline search-box, so i want everything aligned in the middle. Is it possible?
Back in the days when i was asking this, i tried achieving this with textarea which is really not possible without scripting. The answer was adding HTML5's contenteditable="true" on a table cell with style="vertical-align: middle". If one's project allows modern HTML, this is a rather simple and effective solution.
If instead of adding
<td> to your markup, you would like something regular like a
<div>, you would still need two of them:
<div style="display: table"> <div style="display: table-cell; vertical-align: middle" contenteditable="true"> I am vertically aligned </div> </div>
