I am not sure if this is possible.

How do you position an element, lets say a table, vertically centered on a page?  No scrollbars.

I wouldn't mind copying the code for you.

Here it goes:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Middle align test - multiple lines</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<meta name="Author" content="Lucian Slatineanu, http://www.badboy.ro/" />
<style type="text/css" media="screen">
<!--
p {
     margin:0;
     padding:0;
}
#wrapper {
     width:550px;
     border:1px solid #666;
     padding:10px;
     height:300px;
}
#fixed {
     float:right;
     width:200px;
     height:300px;
     background:#666;
     display:block;
}
#wrapper>#floating { /*display:table for Mozilla & Opera*/
     display:table;
     position:static;
}
#floating { /*for IE*/
     width:300px;
     height:100%;
     background:#EAEAEA;
     position:relative;
}
#floating div { /*for IE*/
     position:absolute;
     top:50%;
}
#floating>div { /*for Mozilla and Opera*/
     display:table-cell;
     vertical-align:middle;
     position:static;
}
#floating div div {
     position:relative;
     top:-50%;
}
-->
</style>
</head>

<body>
<div id="wrapper">
     <img src="0.gif" alt="stuff" id="fixed" />
     <div id="floating"><div><div>

          <p>Middle aligned text goes right here and it does wrap nicely at the end of the line</p>
     </div></div></div>
</div>
</body>
</html>
