The height of a 'table-row' element's box is calculated once the user
agent has all the cells in the row available: it is the maximum of the
row's computed 'height', the computed 'height' of each cell in the row,
and the minimum height (MIN) required by the cells. A 'height' value of
'auto' for a 'table-row' means the row height used for layout is MIN. MIN
depends on cell box heights and cell box alignment (much like the
calculation of a line box height). (...)

In CSS 2.1, the height of a cell box is the minimum height required by the
17.5.3 Table height algorithms

If 'border: 50px solid black;' is removed, then a 100px by 100px lime
square is rendered. Can you explain this?
