I'd like to recommend that vertical-align be amended in one of 2 ways:

1) if the vertical-align property is specified in an element having position: absolute/fixed, that it position boxes inside it relative to its own inner dimensions; thus:

#container { position: absolute; height: 100%; vertical-align: bottom; }

<div id="container">
<div id="example">Bottom</div>
</div>

places "example" effectively at the bottom of the window.


2) A property be added that works as above in any context; for example, vertical-box-align, etc. vertical-align would be left be for backwards compatibility.
