With IE6 standards-compliant mode enabled, I am no longer able to create
variable height TABLE rows.  For example, create a table with three rows.
Set the table height to 100%, then set the height of two of the three rows
to 1px.  This will cause the height of the third row to auto-fill.  This
functionality is very handy, but apparently no longer works in IE6
standards-compliant mode.  Any suggestions?

<table style="width: 100%; height: 100%">
<tr style="height: 1px; background-color: aliceblue;">
  <td>Top</td>
</tr>
<tr>
  <td>Middle</td>
</tr>
<tr style="height: 1px; background-color: aliceblue;">
  <td>Bottom</td>
</tr>
</table>
