Hi,

I hope someone can help me. I have a div that use a class for the font:
font-size: 12px;
font-weight: bold;
color: #333333;
margin-left: 8px;
text-align: left;

Now I want to place a image inside this div, in front of the text.
<div><img>Text</div>
How I can make it working that the image is allways at the bottom of the div? I tried a few ways but it is allways not at the bottom and IE and FIrefox will place it everytime different.

I hope someone can help me.

My first comment shows simply how to force an image to the bottom of its containing div. The below code also shows how to put text inside the image as it's div is really a background image:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
	<title>Test</title>
<style type="text/css">
	#myDiv
	{
		border: 2px solid black;
		background: #cecece;
		position: relative;
		height: 200px;
		width: 200px;
	}
	#myImageContainer
	{
		position: absolute;
		bottom: 0; left: 0;
		background: Red url('image.jpg') no-repeat;
		height: 100px;
		width: 100px;
	}	
</style>
</head>
<body>
	<div id="myDiv">
		<div id="myImageContainer">hello world</div>
	</div>
</body>
</html>
