In this section, we will learn what the caption-side property is and how to use it in CSS.
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.
