CSS Question

Vertically align text next to an image?

Why won't

vertical-align: middle
work? And yet,
vertical-align: top
does work.

<div>
<img style="width:30px;height:30px">
<span style="vertical-align:middle">Doesn't work.</span>
</div>

Answer

Actually, in this case it's quite simple: apply the vertical align to the image. Since it's all in one line, it's really the image you want aligned, not the text.

<!-- moved "vertical-align:middle" style from span to img -->
<div>
  <img style="vertical-align:middle" src="https://placehold.it/60x60">
  <span style="">Works.</span>
</div>

Tested in FF3.
