Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to define both 'html' and 'body' as 'height: 100%;'.  Example page here:
<!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>
<title>100% Height</title>
<meta name="author" content="remorina" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<style type="text/css">
* {
	margin:0px;
	padding:0px;
	border:0px;
	}

html {height:100%;}
body {
        height:100% !important;
        background-color:#abcdef;
        font:11px Tahoma, "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", Verdana;
        min-width:990px;
