Assuming everything is set to auto (width, height, margins) couldn't you
simply render a "square" which contains all the text in the exact center of
it's container?

The only problem I see off the bat is if we have too much content inside of
the element, in which case it simply can't exceed the size of the object
it's inside.  In which case over flow rules would apply.  The exception to
that would probably need to be screen height if the container was only the
body tag.  Although I might suggest some sort of toggle that allows for
horizontal displaying instead of vertical (cliche as that sort of layout is
considered).

Or am I totally off base here?
