table layout issues

Hi,
I am having trouble with tables. I have an outer table whose height
is set to 100%. It has a header and footer and the middle section has
the content. In the content i.e. the middle cell of the table, I have
inner table whose height is set to 100%. On IE, the layout looks fine
but in firefox, sometimes it throws about 800 px of white space. This
space is not shown everytime but after few refresh to the page, it
comes up. I assume this is firefox,netscape bug or may be IE is
interpreting it somehow to show it correctly. Is there a way I can get
a work around for this one ?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks
Subrato

Adding a URL to show the problem may get you more replies :-)
