CSS Button text centered vertically


I want to make a button that automatically resizes according to the
text length and the font size (which can be changed in firefox pretty
easily with the browser).

The button already works for resizing horizontally, the problem is
when I enlarge the text using firefox, the text doesnt stay aligned
with the button. If the text is larger, the text is not centered
vertically in the button.

Here is my code,

I need a solution that the text will stay centered in the button
whatever size the text is.
It also needs to work in IE

Thank you for helping me

It's only doing what you told it to do:
background: url(./images/btny_l.gif) no-repeat left top;

Notice the "top" vertical position.

I don't think you can do it with the single image you're using for both
normal and :hover states. Make 2 images, one for each state, and
vertically position it center instead of top.

I want to center an image on the screen and have text centered over the image. What's the best way to do this?

Any help is appreciated... Jerry

Dear NG-Readers, It's me again on my long road to perfection. I would like to center the copy text between the two large arrows vertically when there is not enough text to fill "copy"-div.

Hello, I am trying to vertically center text in a background image, I found a solution on this site that sets the line-height to the height of the background image. This works just fine, except when the text is too long that it wraps. div.module h2{ width:178px; width:"182px"; height:28px; font-family:"Avenir Black", verdana, geneva, sans-serif; background:url(../images/nav_subhead_bg.gif) repeat;

On my page at http://www.sticksite.com/grizzly/ I want all the images down the left side with the relevant text vertically centered beside each image. NO tables; CSS only. The only way I can get it now is to use a lot of BR html tags to add space under each text so that the next image and text are not "all over the page." Can anyone tell this css-beginner how to fix the page, please?
