Align Elements To the Bottom of a Container

Note: Simply adding "bottom:0" or "display:table" to your CSS does not work. Look at the CSS code in the style element and the X/HTML to see how this works.

The bottom:0 method works in Firefox, Netscape 7+, IE5+/Win, Opera 7+, Konqueror 3, Safari, and IE5/Mac.

The display:table method with the hack for IE5-7/Win, which is based on the technique used for Vertically Centering Elements of Unknown Heights, works in IE5-7/Win, Firefox, Netscape 7+, Opera 9+, Konqueror 3, and Safari. IE needs for there to be no content in the parent of "botboxrow" other than the one element with that class. You could of course absolutely position an element at the top of the parent. Doing that causes problems in Firefox though, so you should only absolutely position it in IE5-7/Win
