Hello Experts,

I have the following HTML for the "First", "Previous", "Next" and "Last" arrow images with text " x of y" in between "Previous" and "next" :
<div class="navigation">
            <img src="../images/first.gif">
            <img src="../images/previous.gif">
            <p>x of y</p>
            <img src="../images/next.gif">
            <img src="../images/last.gif">
            <br><br>
            </div>

Open in new window


And I am trying to make text  " x of y" vertically aligned with images with the following CSS, but the texts is sliding down:
.navigation{
    margin-left: 250px;
    
}
.navigation img{
    width: 30px;
    height: 30px;
}

.navigation p{
    display:inline;
    font-size: 130%;
    vertical-align: middle;
   
}

Open in new window


What am I doing wrong?

Thank you

You probably don't have the right line-height.  Try setting that up to 30px.

I don't understand.

Just to clarify, I am trying to make the text vertically centered against the images. I

I added line-height: 30px, but nothing helps.

I was saying try

.navigation p
{
    display:inline;
    font-size: 130%;
    vertical-align: middle;
    line-height: 30px;   
}

If that doesn't work can you send the entire html file and css?  Or is there a link that can be accessed to be debugged.  I am kind of guessing what the rest of your css is doing.

Still doesn't work

here is my entire CSS:
fieldset {
    margin-top: 20px;
    margin-bottom: 0.5em;
    padding-top: .5em;
    
    margin-left: 400px;
    margin-right: 400px;
   
    
}
input {
    width: 18em;
}
input.required {
    border: 2px solid black;
}

label {
    float: left;
    width: 10em;
    text-align: right;
}

label.required {
    font-weight: bold;
}

.button{
    width: 9em;
    border: 2px solid black;
    border-radius: 4px;
    background-color:RGBA(153,212,254,0.30);
    margin-bottom: 10px;
    
}
.addedit{ 
   padding-top: 20px;
   margin:20px 320px;
   padding-left: 200px;
  
}
.addedit input{
    width:11em; 
    padding:2px;
}
.list{
   padding-top: 20px;
   margin:20px 100px;
   padding-left: 200px;
   padding-bottom: 20px;
   
}
.list input{
    width: 8em;
}

#user_list{
    padding-top: 40px;
    padding-left: 230px;
}
#add_usersbtn{
    width: 12em;

    width: 12em;
    padding: 1px;
}
#return_to_dispatchbtn{
    width: 12em;

    width: 30px;
    height: 30px;

You need to add vertical-align to the images, not the text:

.navigation img{
    width: 30px;
    height: 30px;
    vertical-align:middle;
}
