height 100% not working with doctype!!!! CSS ISSUE??? DOCTYPE ISSUE???

Last Modified: 2013-11-19
I have a small problem. I set a style of height=100% to my table so it will expand to fill the screen vertically depending on the users browser. If I dont set my doctype and  just <HTML> it works perfectly but all of my css, divs, etc are "out of wack!"

If I set a doctype to XHTML trans. 1.01, my css styles are back to normal, but the height thing doesnt work!!!!!! WHAT CAN I DO????
