CSS caption-side Property Definition and Usage

The CSS `caption-side` property is used to set the position of the caption of a table in an HTML document.

By default, this caption is set on top of a table, but using this property, we can change the location to bottom of a table if we needed.

  • top: This is the default value and, if used, the caption of a table will be put on top of that table.
  • bottom: this value means put the caption of a table at its bottom.

Note: the two global values “initial” and “inherit” could also be used for this property.
