How do I get text to go in the middle of a div? [duplicate]

Tags: html,css

Problem :

This question already has an answer here:

Why won't the text in the footer go at middle height in the div? Not really had anyone explain how to properly make a text sit in the middle (height-wise) of a div, hopefully this will also fix the white spacing at the bottom of the page as I believe that is caused by the text being pushed down


<div class="yellowfooterbackground">
    <div class="yellowfootercontent">
        <div class="yellowfootercontentleft">
            <p>IPS Fire & Security is a trading name of IPS Facilities - <u><a href="Terms-And-Conditions.html">Terms & Conditions</a></u></p>
        <div class="yellowfootercontentright">
            <p> Web Design & SEO by Raven </p>


.yellowfootercontent {
    height: 30px;
    width: 950px;
    margin-right: auto;
    margin-left: auto;  
    font-family: 'Open Sans', Arial, sans-serif;

.yellowfootercontentleft {
    height: 30px;
    width: 475px;
    float: left;
    text-align: left;

.yellowfootercontentright {
    height: 30px;
    width: 475px;
    text-align: right;
    float: right;

Here is a fiddle of the code above: Fiddle

Solution :

You can use line-height:

.yellowfootercontent {
  height: 30px;
  width: 950px;
  margin-right: auto;
  margin-left: auto;
  font-family: 'Open Sans', Arial, sans-serif;
  font-size: 12px;
  line-height: 5px;
