It works. <table> has 100% of the parent element's height. The parent 
element certainly has no height specified. So it takes the height of the 
childs. The child is a table with height 100% of the parent element...
Boom!

You have to declare a height for the parent elements, e.g.:
html {height:100%;}
body {height:100%;}
table {height:100%;}
