[webkit-dev] Should Table Cell (TD) children inherit height?

Yup, I just wanted to rule this out. Then this means that the div's height
is auto, correct? That means it sizes itself to fit its contents. Now,
consider a similar situation, suppose its contents have a percent instead,
<div id="div1" style="background-color: red; height:100%;">
<div id="div2" style="background-color: blue;">
<div id="div3" style="background-color: green; height:100%"></div>
Both Firefox and WebKit show the same behavior. The resulting color is
green. Why? Why isn't it red? How does the height inheritance work here?
