Faced such a problem.
In Twitter Bootstrap, the element is not vertically aligned (centered) inside the block.

HTML code:

<div id="box"> <p>выравниваемый элемент</p> </div> 


 #box { height: 40px; border: 1px solid #fff; display: table-cell; vertical-align: middle; } 

Without using this framework, everything works correctly.

    In my opinion, the best way to set display: table; parent element and element inside display: table-cell; vertical-align: middle; . Here is a working example:

     #parent { display: table; width:100%; background:#e0e0e0; height:60px; } #child { display: table-cell; vertical-align: middle; text-align:center; } 
     <div id="parent"> <div id="child">Content here</div> </div>

    The problem is as old as the world and I myself suffer from it sometimes. Try to add line-height: 40px;

    • Thank. The problem was solved by Padding. Bootstrap “swallows” them anyway. Line-height is not an option, since as the screen shrinks, the indents become too large. - Astor
     .elem{ display:flex align-items:center; }

    vertical-align touches a row or a table cell (an analog is a block with "display: table-cell;"),

    rather than indenting its baseline inside the parent block

    bootstrap is best:

      position: relative; top: 50%; 

    (does not work if the parent has "display: table;")
