CSS Question

How do you align text with SVG elements?

I have a bunch of SVG icons and text to go with them. However, the text doesn't align with the icons. See this code:



<span class="cardSpan">
<svg style="width:24px;height:24px" viewBox="0 0 24 24">
<path fill="#000000" d="M12 4C14.2091 4 16 5.79086 16 8C16 10.2091 14.2091 12 12 12C9.79086 12 8 10.2091 8 8C8 5.79086 9.79086 4 12 4ZM12 14C16.4183 14 20 15.7909 20 18L20 20L4 20L4 18C4 15.7909 7.58172 14 12 14Z"></path>

My question: how do I align the text to the center of every SVG icon next to it?

Answer

.icon,
.text {
  vertical-align: middle;
  display: inline-block;
}
<span class="cardSpan">
  <span class="icon">
    <svg style="width:24px;height:24px" viewBox="0 0 24 24"><path fill="#000000" d="M12 4C14.2091 4 16 5.79086 16 8C16 10.2091 14.2091 12 12 12C9.79086 12 8 10.2091 8 8C8 5.79086 9.79086 4 12 4ZM12 14C16.4183 14 20 15.7909 20 18L20 20L4 20L4 18C4 15.7909 7.58172 14 12 14Z"></path></svg>
