Why doesn't the table with id shouldBeTall have a height that is the
same as it's enclosing td? Firebug tells me that the table's height
is 25 pixels and the enclosing td's height is 300px. Do I need to
specify something different than "style=height: 100%;" ?
Re: table with height:100% doesn't take up all of parent's height? -

You've set a percentage height of an auto-height container which the
spec tells browsers to ignore.
Although in this case you'd think it wouldn't be so hard to see what you
mean, in general the height of a container with auto height often
depends on its contents. So to ask for the contents to be some
percentage of the container is a bit circular and non-sensical.
