How to position a div at the bottom of its container using CSS?

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>Position a div at bottom</title>
        <style>
            .main_div {
                text-align:center;
                position: relative;
                left: 100px;
                height: 200px;
                width: 500px;
                background-color: green; 
            }
            .sub_div {
                position: absolute;
                bottom: 0px;
            }
            p {
                margin-left:110px;
            }
        </style>
    </head>
    <body>
        <div class="main_div">
            <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
            <div class="sub_div"
                <p>A computer science portal for geeks</p>
            </div>
        </div>
    </body>    
</html>

<html>
    <head>

                background-color:green;
            }
            .main_div {
                height: 100%;
                width:100%;
                border-collapse: collapse;
            }
            h1, p {
                text-align:center;
            }
            * {
                padding: 0;
                margin: 0;
            }
        </style>
    </head>
    <body>
        <table class="main_div">
            <tr>
                <td valign="top"><h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1></td>
            </tr>
