The following works for me in Antenna House where the first page sequence 
centres text in a two-inch high box and the second page sequence centres 
the text on the page:

<page-sequence master-reference="frame-pages">

<flow flow-name="frame-body">

<block-container border-style="solid" height="2in" display-align="center">
   <block text-align="center">Centred text</block>
</block-container>

</flow>

</page-sequence>

<page-sequence master-reference="frame-pages">

<flow flow-name="frame-body">

<block-container border-style="solid" height="100%" display-align="center">
   <block text-align="center">Centred text</block>
</block-container>

</flow>

</page-sequence>

Of course the border is optional, but it helps me see what is going on.

I hope this helps.
