But in IE7 still the text is not  vertically center aligned within the div.
google chrome and FF is perfect now.

You could try:
vertical-align:middle;

and then give a line-height with the same height of your div / container:
line-height:15px;

Next to that (if this doesn't work) you could try something like:
#myinnercontainer { position:absolute; top:50%; height:10em; margin-top:-5em }

But if i am not mistaken, vertical alignment doesn't really work in IE7 and further. Also read up on DOCTYPES, because they make your CSS behave in different ways :)
