alignment for a listview in firefox and IE

Hi,
  I have shown the code below.
  How would I align it to the center of the page in both firefox and IE.
Thanks, LLJ45
<asp:ListView ID="lvLetter" runat="server" ItemPlaceholderID="itemPlaceholder">
                <LayoutTemplate>
                    <table>
                        <td id="itemPlaceholder" runat="server">
                        </td>
                    </table>
                </LayoutTemplate>
                
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:LinkButton ID="lnkLetter" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("letter")%>'
                        CommandName="Find" CommandArgument='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Letter") %>'>
                    </asp:LinkButton>
                </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:ListView>

Place an enclosing div around the listview and provide an id to it.

OnLoad of the Body write a javascript function.

In js find the Height and Width of the body divide it by two.

Set the position of div to this value...

I believe the solution above is incomplete
I think it should be something like following:

div.top = body.height / 2 - div.height / 2
div.left = body.width / 2 - div.widht / 2

Hi,
  Thanks for the help!
  The listview still does NOT center on the page!

  I have attached the updated code.
Thanks, LLJ45
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
            function center()
            {
                control.top = body.height / 2 - div.height / 2
                control.left = body.width / 2 - div.width / 2
            }
        </script>

    <body onload="center();">

            <div id="control">
            <asp:ListView ID="lvLetter" runat="server" ItemPlaceholderID="itemPlaceholder">
                <LayoutTemplate>
                    <table>
                        <td id="itemPlaceholder" runat="server">
                        </td>
                    </table>

                <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:LinkButton ID="lnkLetter" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("letter")%>'
