Does w3's example of vertical centering work?

See http://www.w3.org/Style/Examples/007...r-example.html

When I view this page in IE6 (with all current updates on Windows XP), it is
not vertically centered as the page itself claims and as is claimed on

Any ideas what's wrong?

To further the education of mankind, "Warren Sarle" <sa****@unx.sas .com>

IE6 doesn't handle "position:fixed " correctly. Also, the methods used to
accomplish the centering in other browsers are dubious.

Infinity can have limits.

I *HAVE* Googled the hell out of it, but there's nothing I can understand (in words of one syllable or less) that works for me. If you go to http://www.journeys.ws/layout.html, on the header/banner I'm trying to center the text vertically and horizontally to the right of the image on the left. As you can see, I've got the vertical part, I just can't get the horizontal part to go along with it. Any ideas?
