Safari 3.1.2 behaves the same as Amaya 11.0
MacOS 10.5.5 PPC

This might be a problem for IE & FF, not for us

Another test:
<div style="height: 300px"><!-- change this height for experiment-->
<p style="border: black 1px solid">Test<p>
<p style="border: black 1px solid; height: 50%">Test<p>
</div>

The second <p> is 50%  of the height of the containing <div>
This is what I would expect, but sorry I do not have
XP available just now to check IE & FF
