By the time you swear you're his,
shivering and sighing
and he vows his passion is
infinite, undying --
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying.
                -- Dorothy Parker, "Unfortunate Coincidence"

Distrust all those who love you extremely upon a very slight acquaintance and without any visible reason.

Brave men tell the truth,
A wise man's tools are analogies and puzzles,
A woman holds her tongue,
Knowing silence will speak for her.

css vertical positioning

Filed under: useful snippets — yordan @ 10:08 am


Vertical centering is just as important. I want to be able to (without tables) place a 500×500 box center of the window without resorting to some wierd javascript to do it. You give me a div (or p) that does this in all browsers with zero javascript and I will be impressed.

The way I usually do it is with negative margins. It's kind of a workaround, but it does work. Position the div 50% from the top and left, and then give it a negative margin-top & margin-left equal to 1/2 its own height & width respectively (in the case of 500×500, use a -250px margin) and it should center vertically.

For example, I use something like this on one of my sites:
#container {
position: absolute;
left: 50%;
top: 50%;
width: 500px;
height: 500px;
margin-left: -250px;
margin-top: -250px;

An infinite universe is no guarantee that everything will happen. There are many infinities. For example, there are an infinite number of numbers between three and four, but none of them are five.
