No, the typo didn't screw it up. I just missed my own point. 
I don't use the height-option anymore since it is useless with NN4.
Have you ever tried to have a table within a table and both of
them are height="100%"? The enclosed table is never 100% with NN4.
The following code will produce different results with NN4 and

<TABLE BORDER="1" WIDTH="100%" HEIGHT="100%">
<td valign="top">
 <TABLE BORDER="1" WIDTH="100%" HEIGHT="100%"> 
 <td valign="bottom">Text at the bottom.</td>
 <td valign="top">Text at the top.<p><br><p></td>

(And please nobody should think that this kind of table
construction is not common.)

Yes, but sometimes I really feel how a few of my hairs
turn grey while fiddling out where the problems hide. :)
Don't forget: a lot more than 60% use IE todays.
