CSS question

I have this page > http://quickgoldfoils.com/

I know margin: 0 auto will center a div item horizontally but is there any way to center it vertically? IE same amount of height on top as on the bottom?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

'Auto' works... if you have a defined height to center it in.  If you try to put it in the center of a page without a defined height, it technically works... but since it is the only content providing any height, 'auto' top and bottom means effectively nothing.
