How can I get the bottom edge of text to sit flush on the bottom border of a single-cell table using CSS?

I need to create a 300x150 px red box with the word SAMPLE sitting FLUSH on the bottom of the box.

This should work, but if you need any more help, please let me know.  You can email me at seanrobertson@hotmail.com

<html>
<head>
<title>DHTML Test</title>
<style type="text/css">
#sample {font-size:18pt}
</style>
</head>
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
<h1>Sample</H1>
<table border="0" width="300" height="150" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
  <tr valign="BOTTOM">
    <td bgcolor="#FF0000" width="359" valign="BOTTOM" height="74">
      <div id="Layer1" style="position:relative; left:97; top:25; width:98; height:20; z-index:1;">
        <span ID="sample">SAMPLE</span>
      </div>
    </td>
  </tr>  
</table>
</body>
</html>

the width attribute in the following line (which appeared in the table of the previous code):
<td bgcolor="#FF0000" width="359" valign="BOTTOM" height="74">
 can be removed so that the line appears as:
<td bgcolor="#FF0000" valign="BOTTOM" height="74">
It doesn't make any difference, but is just cleaner coding.

Commented:
same goes with "height="74"".  Sorry about that, the editor I used to layout the table took a crap.

Turns out that IE 3.02 (4.70.1300) doesn't display what I'm trying to do in CSS. :-(
