vertical alignment does not work

Items and the image are working like a dream and aligning well vertically,

for reasons unknown the welcome text in the above code does not align vertically in the center, wht am i doing wrong here ?
infact its not even getting 100% height as mentioned in css

IE7, Fireox 3

From what i understand, image is an element within a container, so when i say veritically align middle, it aligns itself with respect to its container vertically,
however, i have given the welcome's div too the same attribute, shouldnt the entire div be in the center irrespective of its contents? ???
isnt Height=100% working too ?? (not that i need it, i am just curious why its not working here.)

(note: its not my image, i just googled for it)
