Tutorial :css float:right and vertical align?



Question:

i am experimenting with html and css and trying to figure out how to make this work... I am just trying to make the #menu float to the right of the h1 but be on the same baseline so... but obviously float:right makes it float to top-right? any way to make it float to bottom-right or align with the bottom of the containing div?

here is the html:

<!doctype html>  <html>      <head>          <title>Website.com</title>          <link rel="Stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" />      </head>      <body>          <div>              <h1><a href="#" title="Website.com">Website.com</a></h1>              <div id="menu">                  <ul>                      <li><a href="#" title="Home">Home</a></li>                      <li><a href="#" title="Link1 Description">Link1</a></li>                      <li><a href="#" title="Link2 Description">Link2</a></li>                      <li><a href="#" title="Link3 Description">Link3</a></li>                      <li><a href="#" title="About Website.com">About</a></li>                  </ul>              </div>          </div>          <hr />          <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

here is what is looks like now: Website.com

thanks for help!


Solution:1

I haven't looked into this much, but if you set the containing div's position: relative, you can just make the ul position: absolute; bottom: 0; right: 0 and it should go where you want it.

Example:

div {position: relative}  ul {position: absolute; bottom: 0; right: 0}  li {float: left; list-style: none}  

--

<div>      <h1>Header</h1>      <ul>          <li>One</li>          <li>Two</li>          <li>Etc...</li>      </ul>  </div>  


Solution:2

There's no property floating it bottom-right or top-right. But without changing your html structure you can just add a top margin to your menu div

#menu {    ....    margin-top:20px;  }  


Solution:3

You can use table:

  <table id="title">    <tr>      <td>        <h1><a href="#" title="Website.com">Website.com</a></h1>      </td>      <td>        <div id="menu">            <ul>                <li><a href="#" title="Home">Home</a></li>                <li><a href="#" title="Link1 Description">Link1</a></li>                <li><a href="#" title="Link2 Description">Link2</a></li>                <li><a href="#" title="Link3 Description">Link3</a></li>                <li><a href="#" title="About Website.com">About</a></li>            </ul>        </div>      </td>    </tr>  </table>  

And add this into your CSS file:

  #title  {    width:100%;  }    #title td+td  {    text-align:right;    vertical-align:center;  }  

Vertical align is default set to center, so you need not to set it.
Or if you don't want to use table, you can just set padding-top:10px; into #menu ul.
