I have a bootstrap based row / column system. One row is labels for a progress bar. The second row will be the glyphicon map pointer (the pointer is NOT included in this question).

How do I align this text to the bottom of the div?

Screenshot
(The red column outlines are there to show the columns. I added the arrows to show which ones need to be moved down...

Here's the fiddle... but it doesn't exactly work as the screenshot since (at least on this monitor) the result section is a little narrow....

You can do it by wrapping the inner content with a tag like the <label> one you have for start, before making the containing element have the postition of relative.  The inner tags then can have the absolute positioning assigned and it's easily put to the bottom of the container.

demo here: http://jsfiddle.net/d388t1oL/6/embedded/result/ (from http://jsfiddle.net/d388t1oL/6/)

#progress .progressMarker {
height: 85px;
text-align: center;
position: relative;
}

#progress .progressMarker * {
position: absolute;
bottom: 0px;
}

Don't like to object, however both the author and I tried the vertical-align property with no success because the elements are floating, which changes their dimensional properties.  Hence the need for absolute positioning within the element.

I believe my answer is the only correct one.
