Vertical Aligning of the Text

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

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

Here's a working demo -> http://jsfiddle.net/ChrisStanyon/p17q0ugm/

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.
