How to Position Caption for Tables in CSS

If you ever happen to need to position caption for a table in CSS, there's a rule for that, called caption-side. No additional rules or markup is needed, just this one:

.bottom {
    caption-side: bottom;
Copied to clipboard!

By default, this is set to top. It also accepts the following non-standard values:

.non-standard {
    caption-side: left; 
    caption-side: right; 
    caption-side: top-outside; 
    caption-side: bottom-outside; 
Copied to clipboard!
