vertical align images in div

From what I read, aligning images vertically in a div is not easy. It
proofed too difficult for me:
I tried to align the "control buttons" on the right hand side of the
main nav bar by vertically alignign the container div (#playPanel)to
"middle" - but it is no good.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?
I would be very grateful.

Vertical align them to what? The buttons barely fit into the navbar.

that is right, but I would like the buttons to be vertically aligned
when the pages gets resized. Now the seem to cling to the top.
Thanks for your quick response.

No idea what you are talking about, the page rigidly stays at it's fixed
width when I change the viewport width.

That would be nice, but when zooming in in FF, I get this:

Now see what I mean?

Fixed width page designs are not nice, quite the contrary.
, but when zooming in in FF
"when the pages gets resized" suggests something else than text zooming.

A trivial control freakish "issue". Time better spent would be to solve
some real problems like making the design fluid, the over spilling menu
bar text, respecting the user's chosen font size, providing useful alt
content and not to rely on CSS (view the page sans CSS to see what I
mean).

You are right. I am not a native speaker of English and got mixed up
with the terminology.

Alt content is something I will add at a later stage. Now I am just
setting up the pages.

I will view the page sans CSS tomorrow to see what you mean (it is past
midnight here). I thought I was respecting the user's chosen font size:
body: font-size: 100%; but feel a bit like a bulldozer just ran over me
without respecting my amateur size.

#maincontent {font-size: 0.85em; line-height: 1.2em;

Btw, for normal text leave the line height alone.

#menubar {font-size: .8em; }

#sidebar1 {font-size: 0.7em; }

It's generally considered acceptable to reduce font size to no lower
than 80%/.8em for non essential content so as to focus attention to the
main content, but not for essential elements.

Welcome to usenet, post a url here and you may find that we will discuss
the problems with it. If that includes what you were asking about,
consider yourself lucky.

We don't raise these issues to put you down, but to draw your attention
to real problems.

Sorry, but that's just wrong. My 30+ years of systems development
tells me that anything left "till later" never gets done.

Besides, it's common sense that the best time to write the alt text
is when you're putting the image into the page, because that's when
you're most aware of what purpose it serves.

It didn't: I asked about vertically aligning my 'buttons'. This you
called a trivial issue. I would still like to know how it is done.

I appreciate that. I am especially worried about "the over spilling
menu
bar text" since I do not know what you mean. I am trying to get things
right, not because I am a control freak but because I try to serve the
visitors as well as I can.

Your visitors care not one jot about this "issue". The other issues I
raised *are* likely to degrade the user experience.

Thank you! That is something I definitely want to remedy.

You would search long and hard to find a better contradiction of terms than
that! 8P

Methinks he is!

It's one thing to offer "advice", it is quite another to be such a sanctimonious ass about it.

I can't stand self-righteous tech-know-it-all pricks like you.

She's just looking for help. You can deliver your message in a better way, can't you?

Don't forget there was a time when you didn't know "everything", and were scrounging to learn too, chump.
