If you've ever rendered images in a tree control, you may have noticed both the image and the label are effectively top, left justified. There's no CSS solution to changing this, the answer is to extend Flex's TreeItemRenderer and move the renderer's label in ActionScript.

Here's my version. Inside updateDisplayList() are a few lines of ActionScript that reposition label to make right justified and vertically centered. The SWF is source code enabled and that source is available here.
