Our rendering on this content matches Firefox in both quirks and standards mode. I also do not know if a reason per spec for the div to get 100% height. Height does not inherit.

Now, I believe the height attribute should trickle down to the TR and TD tags, correct? What about children of a TD tag? If you add an empty div child to a table, should it fit the whole cell, or should it have a size of 0?
