Set the height within the <TD> tags.  This will work in Mozilla

<table>
<tr>
<td height="100">
Your text etc
</td>
</tr>
</table>

Mozilla assumes the body height is the same as the content height, so 80% has no meaning. You'll need to add this:

<style type="text/css">

html,body { height:100%; }

</style>

<html style="background-color: buttonface;">
<body>

<table border="1" width="100%">
<tr>

<td>
 <table border="1" width="40%" height="100%">
  <td> table1 row1 </td>
  <td> table1 row2 </td>
 </table>
</td>

<td>
 <table border="1" width="40%">
  <tr>
    <td> table2 row1 </td>
    <td> table2 row2 </td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td> table3 row below </td>
  </tr>
 </table>
</td>

</tr>
</table>

</body>
</html>

Whenever I create a website, the first image I create is the 1 pixel x 1 pixel transparent gif.

Then, when I want to make a table a certain height, I do this:

<table width="100%"><tr>
<td width="1"><img src="images/transparent.gif" width="1" height="600" border="0" alt=""></td>
<td width="649">
<!-- PLACE CONTENT HERE -->
</td>
</tr></table>

The transparent image will stretch, but since it is transparent, you'll never see it.

Please don't use images in that way - it's completely outdated...

>>have a look at this simple example

You haven't included the code from the comment above. Like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title></title>
<style type="text/css">

html,body { height:100%; }
table { height:80%; border:1px solid #000000; }

</style>
</head>
<body>

<table>
      <tr>
            <td>This is the content</td>
      </tr>
</table>

</body>
</html>

Sure - this is the basic format in your case:


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title></title>
<style type="text/css">

html,body
{
      height:100%;
      margin:0;
      padding:0;
}

table#main
{
      height:100%;
      width:100%;
}

table#main td
{
      height:100%;
}

table#full
{
      height:100%;
      width:40%;
      border:1px solid #000000;
}

table#normal
{
      width:40%;
      border:1px solid #000000;
}

td
{
      padding:0;
}

</style>
</head>
<body>

<table id="main" cellspacing="0">
      <tr>
            <td>
            <table id="full" cellspacing="0">
                  <tr>
                        <td>table1 row1</td>
                        <td>table1 row2</td>
                  </tr>
            </table></td>
            <td>
            <table id="normal" cellspacing="0">
                  <tr>
                        <td>table2 row1</td>
                        <td>table2 row2</td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                        <td>table3 row below</td>
                  </tr>
            </table></td>
      </tr>
</table>

</body>
</html>
