CSS Vertical Align Baseline HTML Headings


I have two columns of headings that I want to align to the baseline which are both different font-sizes. In addition to this I want one on the left side and one on the right side.

If you use display: inline-block they are aligned to the baseline, regardless of the max-width.


<div class="headings interior"> <div class="headings-position"> <h2 class="left heading">Heading</h2> <h3 class="right sub-heading">Heading with long text & Stuff</h3> </div> </div>


h2,h3 { margin: 0; display: inline-block; position: relative; } h2 { left: 0; bottom: 0 } h3 { max-width: 100px; right: 0; bottom: 0; text-align:right; } .headings { position: relative; height: 200px; width: 500px; margin: 0 auto; border: 1px solid #000; }

You need to use float: left for h2 instead of left: 0, and float: right for h3 instead of right: 0.
