Syntax

valign=" { baseline | bottom | middle | top } "

Description

In a very similar manner to this element’s align attribute, the valign attribute allows you to override the default vertical alignment for content within table cells related to the col in question.

Example

Here, the valign is set to "bottom" for cells that appear in the first column of the table:

<table border="1" cellpadding="5">
  <col valign="bottom"/>
  <col/>
  <col/>
  <col/>
  <tr>
    <th colspan="4">Work Contact Points</th>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <th>Name</th>
    <th>Email</th>
    <th>Phone</th>
    <th>Floor/Block</th>
  </tr>
  ⋮
<table>

Value

The recognized attribute values are as shown in the syntax section.
