    CSS bar chart problem

    I am trying to get the numbers underneath the bars, it supposed to be a number under each bar.

    At the moment the number is near the top of the div (but not top of the DIV), and is aligned to the right.

    I can not get the numbers <span style='font-size:x-small'>1</span> under neath the bar.

    Nor can I get the number align to be in the middle of the space , so not aligned right, but aligned center or middle??

    Any ideas

        width: 62px; 
        height: 50px;
        position : relative;
    .wrapper > div{
      bottom: 0px;
      width: 10px;
      position : absolute; 
      margin: 0px;
      display : inline-block; 
    <div class="wrapper"  >
     <div style="left:0px;height:22px;background-color:red;"></div><span style='font-size:x-small'>1</span>
     <div style="left:12px;height:11px;background-color:blue;"></div><span style='font-size:x-small'>0</span>
     <div style="left:24px;height:6px;background-color:red;"></div><span style='font-size:x-small'>2</span>
     <div style="left:36px;height:36px;background-color:blue;"></div><span style='font-size:x-small'>3</span>
     <div style="left:48px;height:28px;background-color:red;"></div> <span style='font-size:x-small'>0</span>

    Hi there icm63,

    and a warm welcome to these forums.

    You may be interested in this alternative method,
    which avoids the use of undesirable inline styling. :

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,height=device-height,initial-scale=1">
    <title>untitled document</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://www.codingforums.com/screen.css" media="screen">
    <style media="screen">
    #bars span  {
        position: relative;
        display: inline-block;
        width: 0.625em;
        margin-right: -0.125em;
    #bars span::after  {
       position: absolute;
       top: 100%;
       width: 100%;
       font-size: x-small;
       text-align: center;
    #bars span:nth-child(odd)  {background-color: #f00;}
    #bars span:nth-child(even) {background-color: #00f;}
    #bars span:nth-child(1) {height: 1.375em;}
    #bars span:nth-child(2) {height: 0.6875em;}
    #bars span:nth-child(3) {height: 0.375em;}
    #bars span:nth-child(4) {height: 2.25em;}
    #bars span:nth-child(5) {height: 1.75em;}
    #bars span:nth-child(1)::after {content:'1';}
    #bars span:nth-child(2)::after {content:'0';}
    #bars span:nth-child(3)::after {content:'2';}
    #bars span:nth-child(4)::after {content:'3';}
    #bars span:nth-child(5)::after {content:'0';}
    <div id="bars">
