HTML-CSS: Tips of the Day

A min-height for table, tr or td:

It's not a nice solution but try it like this:

<table>
    <tr>
        <td>
            <div>Lorem</div>
        </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td>
            <div>Ipsum</div>
        </td>
    </tr>
</table>

and set the divs to the min-height:

div {
    min-height: 300px;
}
