Attribute Values

Value Description
top Top-align content
middle Center-align content
bottom Bottom-align content
baseline The baseline is the "imaginary line" which most letters "sit" on, in a line of text. The baseline value sets the row so that all the table data share the same baseline. Often this has the same effect as the bottom value. However, if the fonts are in different sizes, baseline looks better. Look at the illustration below

Illustration of bottom vs. baseline if fonts are in different sizes:

valign="bottom"

valign="baseline"
