For example, a menu positioned on the right of the page, but halfway down - without knowing the exact height of the element.
I'll be doing the same thing after I hit post, so this is more of a challenge for the tightest code possible ;)

This will put #box in the center of the screen all the time.
LMK if this is what you wanted.

Ah yes, that's close but for two things:
1) Doesn't cut the cake for IE6 (though honestly for my purposes this doesn't matter too much)
2) More importantly, the 50% sets the top of the element at 50%, not the center of the element, which is why I was so focused on finding a non-JS method.

check out cssplay.co.uk
there is a position fixed layout that even IE6 likes.

Will the element have an explicit height and width?

without knowing the exact height of the element
If I knew the height it'd be a no brainer.
http://www.wpdfd.com/editorial/thebox/deadcentre4.html and http://www.milov.nl/code/css/verticalcenter.html don't work because you need a height.
http://d-graff.de/fricca/center.html doesn't work because I need it to be fixed.

What is this being used for and why can't you use js?

I can, just figured we had some top notch brains on this board and wanted to see if (assuming it's possible) we could figure out a way to manage it with CSS only.
