Hmmm... Deja Vu? Seems I saw that before...
Rich is right, HEIGHT is not a valid attribute of <table>... A table's height is the sum of the height of each of its rows. The height of each row is dictacted by the heighest cell within that respective row.
But if you're fighting with the use of tables, and getting the layout you desire, why not take up the battle with CSS instead, and break that learning curve, as its the direction of the future anyway, eh?
