min-height

Sets the minimum height for an element.

{ min-height: sMinHeight }

sMinHeight

Variant that specifies or receives the minimum height for an element:

length

Floating-point number followed by an absolute units designator (cm, mm, in, pt, or pc) or a relative units designator (em, ex, or px).

For more information about the supported length units, see Length units reference.

percentage

Integer followed by a percent sign (%) that specifies a percentage of the containing block height to use as the minimum height of the element. If the height of the containing block is not explicitly set, the element has no minimum height and the min-height property is interpreted as 0%. For information about containing blocks and how the height is computed, see the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), Level 2, Revision 1 (CSS2.1) specification.

The property has no default value. It is not inherited.

The following example shows the benefits of using the min-height property over the height property for a TR element:

<html>
<head><title>CSS Min-Height Property Example</title>
</head>
<body>
<table border ="1" style="table-layout:fixed; width:100%;">
  <tr>
    <td style="height:35px;background-color:#99CCFF">This cell has the
<strong>height</strong> property set to 35px. In Internet Explorer, overflow text
is clipped when <strong>height</strong> is set on cells or rows in fixed-layout tables.
Setting the <strong>min-height</strong> property, however, accomodates overflow text 
by increasing the cell or row height.</td>
  </tr>
