Hi Experts,
I have a DIV inside a 100% height TD. I want to stretch the DIV down to fill the TD from top to bottom. I used height:100% of course but that didn't work. You can see my html code below:
<table width="100%" cellspacing="20" cellpadding="0">

		<tr>

			<td style="width:25%;height:100%"  valign="top">

<div>

  <b class="tracks">

  <b class="tracks1"><b></b></b>

  <b class="tracks2"><b></b></b>

  <b class="tracks3"></b>

  <b class="tracks4"></b>

  <b class="tracks5"></b></b>

  <div class="tracksfg" style="vertical-align:top;height:100%">

	Content

  </div>

  <b class="tracks">

  <b class="tracks5"></b>

  <b class="tracks4"></b>

  <b class="tracks3"></b>

  <b class="tracks2"><b></b></b>

  <b class="tracks1"><b></b></b></b>

</div>

			</td>
 

		</tr>

	</table>

You can't not just autoheight a div, because a divs height depends on the content.
Try to add these to the div
height:auto !important
height:100%;

And why not apply a style class to the td see snippet:
But it depends on what you're trying to do.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

<title>Untitled Document</title>

<style type="text/css">

.tdstyle {

	background:#ccc;

	width:25%;

	height:100%

}

</style>

</head>
 

<body>

<table width="100%" cellspacing="20" cellpadding="0">

		<tr>

			<td class="tdstyle"  valign="top">

<div>

  <b class="tracks">

  <b class="tracks1"><b></b></b>

  <b class="tracks2"><b></b></b>

  <b class="tracks3"></b>

  <b class="tracks4"></b>

  <b class="tracks5"></b></b>

  <div class="tracksfg" style="vertical-align:top;height:100%">

	Content

  </div>

  <b class="tracks">

  <b class="tracks5"></b>

  <b class="tracks4"></b>

  <b class="tracks3"></b>

  <b class="tracks2"><b></b></b>

  <b class="tracks1"><b></b></b></b>

</div>
 

			</td>

 

		</tr>

	</table>
 

</body>

It can also depend on the browser you use. Some like IE6 do not always render CSS heights properly. You can use javascript to determine the screenheight property and then using this to set the DIV height.

It is anything but ideal...

This is code here that you can adapt

@therealteune I am using style sheets but for here I embedded the stylesheet with the HTML. Thanks for drawing my attention. I used the code as instructed but it didn't work too. I'm sure that I applied the code correctly. See the snippet below:
 
@bportlock:
It's not exactly what you want, but you should be able to adapt it to your needs.

The problem of course is that it is JavaScript. This won't work in all browsers, but most modern, and it won't work period if JavaScript is disabled.
WOW ;)
 
Do you mean guys that the best way is to set the height manually using pxs or pts?
 

			<td style="width:25%;border:1px solid #000;height:auto !important;height:100%;" valign="top">

<div>

  <b class="tracks">

  <b class="tracks1"><b></b></b>

  <b class="tracks2"><b></b></b>

  <b class="tracks3"></b>

  <b class="tracks4"></b>

  <b class="tracks5"></b></b>

  <div class="tracksfg" style="vertical-align:top;">

	

	        <span class="big_text">*9DJB 'D5H1</span><br><span class="sm_text">

<!-- START BLOCK : no_content -->

			DE J*E 'D*9DJB 9DI 'D5H1) -*I 'D"F

<!-- END BLOCK : no_content -->

        {content}
 
 

  </div>

  <b class="tracks">

  <b class="tracks5"></b>

  <b class="tracks4"></b>

  <b class="tracks3"></b>

  <b class="tracks2"><b></b></b>

  <b class="tracks1"><b></b></b></b>

</div>

			</td>

Why don't you use rowspan and colspan for this:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

<title>Untitled Document</title>

</head>
 

<body><table width="500" border="0" cellpadding="0">

  <tr>

    <th width="265" scope="col">Tableheading</th>

    <th width="229" scope="col">&nbsp;</th>

  </tr>

  <tr>

    <td>&nbsp;</td>

    <td rowspan="3">&nbsp;</td>

  </tr>

  <tr>

    <td>&nbsp;</td>

  </tr>

  <tr>

    <td>&nbsp;</td>

  </tr>

  <tr>

    <td>&nbsp;</td>

    <td>&nbsp;</td>

  </tr>

</table>
 
 

</body>
