is the table percent value for height used for displaying in browsers.
i have a table i want to run to the bottom of the screen so it seemed
best to set the height value to 100%.

when i display the table, it only sizes to the elements nested inside
the table (as if no value for height has been given) and not to the
bottom of the screen. i have also tried appling the height attribute
as a css class but no joy.

the code for the table is:

<table width="667" height="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0"
cellspacing="0" background="images/bg_content.gif">

....and i am viewing it in internet explorer 6. any help would be much
apprecieated. cheers
