How can I align centered inline-block elements correctly?

Tags: css,html5,position,css-float,css-position

Problem :

To see what the problem is, please resize the result window in jsfiddle so there are three items in a row. As you can see, the third item doesn't align with the others, apparently because it has less content. How can I fix this? I tried float:left, but then they aren't centered anymore, which is essential.
