Well, as you figured the amount of space needed to push the DIV down
in order to center it, I was thinking of something like:

contentDiv.style.marginTop = calculatedGap + 'px';

However, did you look at Georg's solution he sent Saturday?


For IE, he uses JavaScript (or is it JScript?) in a Microsoft-only
"expression" to position the DIV's top. It seems to solve your problem
nicely, even in IE7, while modern browsers are happy with CSS alone.
