SharePoint: CSS – text at bottom of DIV


A seemingly simple request recently had me spinning around for a day, wrestling with CSS. A set of simple boxes, with text at the BOTTOM of the box. Thrown up by a Content Editor web-part. Easy? Heh! I futzed around for a day, before  a colleague took it up and nailed it for me. Judicial use of just "position" and "bottom" and it works fine.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<STYLE type="text/css">
.bluebox {
    background-color: rgb(0, 114, 198);
    display: inline-block;
    height: 100px;
    width: 100px;
    margin-top: 0px;
    margin-right: 5px;
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    margin-left: 0px;
    position: relative;
    cursor: pointer;
}
.title {
    font-family:'Segoe UI';
    float: left;
    margin: 5px;
    bottom: 5px;
    line-height: 9.5pt;
    font-size: 10.5pt;
    font-weight: 400;
    color: white;
    position: absolute;
}

.bluebox:hover {
    background-color:rgb(0, 32, 80);
}

</STYLE>
