Can't center or add top margin to webpage

I recently created a new webpage but I'm having problems trying to center it vertically. I'm really new to html and css so I was hoping someone might be able to explain to me in layman terms how to edit my html to either get my page to center vertically or at least how to add a top margin so the page isn't stuck right up against the top of the screen. I tried changing the top margin value from 0 to something else, but it didn't work. Here is my current html:

<html>
<head>
<title>Webpage Home 3</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">
<!-- ImageReady Slices (Webpage Home 3.psd) -->
<a href="http://website.com/portfolio.pdf">
<img src="images/index.jpg" width="1000" height="768" border="0" alt=""></a>
<!-- End ImageReady Slices -->
</body>
</html>


Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Why are you using HTML code that was deprecated in 1999???

'

assuming everyone has the same size "page" as you - inluding those with the same text size, browser size, screen size - kind of doubtful if you have those on a mobile phone or tablet up to those with a maximised browser on say a 27" screen of 1600px wide or more :)

Because he's using a technology that was created in 2002 that was out of date when it was released.
