vertical-align:middle; does not work

Please look at http://rkassoc.org/Houston/form.htm

Notice bordered item on left near bottom with text INITIAL TEST.

HTML / CSS for that is:

<div class="col-sm-2 col-xs-2 text-center" style="padding-top:3px;vertical-align:middle;border-style: solid;border-width: 1px;height:90px;">INITAL<br>TEST</div>

Why does vertical-align:middle; not work?

Thanks

My mistake, it doesn't work on floated divs. You will have to manually adjust the top padding and height to achieve this.

You didn't answer why you're creating a table with divs.

Kim WalkerWeb Programmer/TechnicianCommented:
Vertical align is limited to inline elements and table cells. It does not apply to block level elements such as divs.

Why are you creating a table with divs? That must be extremely frustrating.

One way around this is to make your div behave like a table cell by giving it a display of table-cell.
<div class="col-sm-2 col-xs-2 text-center" 
	style="display:table-cell;padding-top:3px;vertical-align:middle;border-style: solid;border-width: 1px;height:90px;">
	INITAL<br>TEST
</div>

I added display:table-cell; Makes no difference.

"You didn't answer why you're creating a table with divs."

I am using Bootstrap to achieve a responsive "table" effect.

What would you recommend?

I need a responsive site with a table like layout.

I know of NO OTHER WAY.
