Trouble with height style attribute and IE

Hi,

its easily explained. I am using a div to draw a line and its supposed
to be 1px in height. Firefox does it... IE not... But why? I have
already set border, margin and padding to 0px but still its way too thick.

Can somebody explain this to me maybe and help me find a fix for it, please.
<html>
<head>
<title>Inkbox </title>
</head>
<body>
<div
style="position :absolute;backg round-color:black;lef t:0px;top:100px ;width:300px;he ight:1px;border-width:0px;margi n:0px;padding:0 px;"></div>
</body>
</html>

or

Look below you'll see the font I added to your div tag. Setting the
font face to 1 point and the line height to 1 point should fix it even
though you have no text in the box.

<div
style="position :absolute;backg *round-color:black;lef t:0px;top*:100p x;width:300px;h eight:1px;*bord er-width:0px;margi n:0px;pa*dding: 0px;
font:1pt/1pt arial,sans serif;"></div>

I've got the problem described in the table above. I've put a div red with some text inside a TD, but its height is less than 100% of TD height as you can see. I've defined the following styles: div.test { background-color:red; height:100%; width: 100%; } table.test { border: 1px solid #CCCCCC; background-color:yellow; } td.test {...

I am completely baffled... i cannot for the life of me get the HEIGHT style to work on a table in the new 2005-supported XHTML.

But when the browser renders the page, its as if there was no height...
