hello i have a div inside of a div that contains 2 input's. i would like to center them according to the height of the parent divs height. setting verticle-align: to middle doesnt work. closest thing i got working is setting margin-top to 50px.

___main_div____
| div1......|div2 |
| html list | [<] |
|.............| [>] |
|________|____|

Post your code. That little image does nothing.

I don't believe that vertical-align or valign applies to div. Maybe you can use tables instead and use <td valign=center>.

Using a table would withdraw benefits of using CSS.

There's a search button on the forum, and the question about vertically aligning div's has been asked many times. ;)

Here's a quick link which should help you though -
