vertical centering a <p> tag in a div.. automatically

I have a fixed height div and I want to center a <p> tag that will vary in length, so it has to center vertical inside the div automatically.  I tried padding:0 auto 0 auto; and it didn't work.

How can this be done?   It's wordpress so I assume css 3 is available

Just FYI, WordPress has absolutely nothing to do with CSS 3.  CSS support is browser-based whereas WordPress just writes code you tell it to write.

When you say the p tag has to center vertically in a div, is it always the one p tag and div or is this something that would need to be applied multiple times in a given page/post?

Thanks for replying, it seems to sit well without trying to force any centering on it so I'll close the question.  Re CSS3.... thanks.. I was automatically equating html5 & css 3 with word press but you are right.
