jQuery Center image vertically within it's container

Cross-browser method to vertically center an image within it's container. IE doesn't always fire the load event for images if they are cached, so we iterate through them first, then handle the load event.
(function() {
	var containerHeight = 128;
	function verticalCenterImage() {
		var height = $(this).height();
		if (height < containerHeight) {
			$(this).css('margin-top', (containerHeight - height) / 2);
		else {
			$(this).css('margin-top', 0);			
	$('#container img').each(verticalCenterImage).load(verticalCenterImage);
