Read this: http://apptools.com/examples/tableheight.php

Table height isn't really valid code to begin with and isn't widely supported since tables are aimed at displaying tabular data - not layout. Any specific reason the table height needs to be 100%? If it's a layout/display issue, consider using DIVs instead.

Either way.. I found this code off the web.. it may work for you..
<html>
   <head>
      <style>
         html, body {height: 100%; margin: 0px;}
      </style>
   </head>
   <body>
      <table style="height: 100%;border-width:1px;border-color:black;" height="100%">
         <tr><td>content</td> </tr>
      </table>
   </body>
</html>

You are using tables as a way to design and layout the page. It's better to use divs instead. It's much more flexible and is the correct way to use it.

However, the code above should work fine.

For info on height % on divs, check:
