Vertical alignment of multiple elements compatible with many browsers?

I have three things I'd like to align vertically, but not using tables. Just using css.  Is there a workaround/hack/solution that is compatible with the major browsers (and versions)?  

<h1>This is a title</h1>
<input type="text" name="" value="a text box">
<input type="image" src="sample.gif" name="">

The text box is a bit larger than the <h1> element, and the image, is a bit larger than the textbox, thus, the desire to have them all vertically aligned in the middle of a div that has a height of 100px.  

Help?

try this...

<div style="height:100px;border:1px solid;">
<h1 style="vertical-align: middle;">This is a title</h1>
<input type="text" name="" value="a text box" style="vertical-align: middle;">
<input type="image" src="sample.gif" name="" style="vertical-align: middle;">
</div>

doesn't work in ie.... that's okay though.  i wound up create 3 separate divs and using float: left for each, but, if there's a better solution, i'm all ears.

are you referring to the title not being in the same line as the text box and image?

I used ie to test and its ok.

this one worked but had to remove <h1>


<div style="display: table; height: 100px;  #position: relative; overflow: hidden; border:1px solid">
    <div style=" #position: absolute; #top: 50%;display: table-cell; vertical-align: middle;">
      <div style=" #position: relative; #top: -50%;">
		This is a title
		<input type="text" name="" value="a text box" style="vertical-align: middle;">
		<input type="image" src="sample.gif" name="" style="vertical-align: middle;">
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
