Saying "I recommend writing non-standard HTML" and "who cares if it
validates" is extremely unhelpful. I suggest that Jonas ignores this rather
silly advice from Ben.

Instead, I strongly recommend visiting the excellent "Web Page Design for
Designers" website, where you will find the following article:-

A good method for centering vertically and horizontally is fully described
and demonsrated with code examples. It works on all current browsers.
