So since when is height=100% not correct HTML 4.01 ?

 

Why does WC3 not supprt percentages as height for tables, etc.

=1&sp=1&noatt=1&No200=1&verbose=1#line-15"15, column 60: there is no
attribute "HEIGHT"

<table border="0" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0" height="100%">

You have used the attribute named above in your document, but the document
type you are using does not support that attribute for this element. This
error is often caused by incorrect use of the "Strict" document type with a
document that uses frames (e.g. you must use the "Transitional" document
type to get the "target" attribute), or by using vendor proprietary
extensions such as "marginheight" (this is usually fixed by using CSS to
achieve the desired effect instead). 

This error may also result if the element itself is not supported in the
document type you are using, as an undefined element will have no supported
attributes; in this case, see the element-undefined error message for
further information. 

How to fix: check the spelling and case of the element and attribute,
(Remember XHTML is all lower-case) and/or check that they are both allowed
in the chosen document type, and/or use CSS instead of this attribute.
