I have been unable to use relative table-cell or table-row heights 
within a page or embedded inside another table as well. Even if I set 
the height of the parent cells and tables explicitly the embedded cells 
just don't scale vertically to their parent containers. I did find 
documentation at the following URL 
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/tables.html#height-layout that leads me 
to believe that table-cell and table-row heights do not implement 
percentage. The sentences at the URL that lead me to this conclusion 
are "CSS2 does not define what percentage values of height  refer to 
when specified for table rows and row groups." and  "CSS2 does not 
define what percentage values of height  refer to when specified for 
table cells." Has anyone been able to confirm that you can not use 
percentages for table-cell and table-row heights or has anyone gotten 
it to work?
