I'm wondering, why the "vertical-align" property is restricted to table and inline elements. Actually in about 60% of the cases, in which I could need it, block elements are involved. It would be so fine, if I just could write

div { 
height:something rather high;
vertical-align:middle; }

and the Browser would automatically center it in the middle.
