In this snippet I don't see where the document type is declared as "quirks" mode. What am I missing?

Hi folks,

A helpful HTML guru has given me the solution to my height-dont-work 
problem in IE 6.

The guru is.... (drumroll)  Tom Melendez of LIPHP fame.  He pointed out 
that changing the document type declaration to "quirks" mode makes IE 
work, instantly fixing the problem.

For completeness, here is a simplified snipeet that illustrates the 
fixed situation:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">        
<html>
<head>
   <style>
   html, body {
      height: 100%;
      width: 100%;
      margin: 0px;
   }
   </style>
</head>
<body>
<center>
   <table cellspacing=0
          style="width: 500px; height: 100%;">
   <tr><td style="height: 100px" bgcolor=red>a </td></tr>
   <tr><td>hello </td></tr>
   <tr><td style="height: 100px" bgcolor=blue>b </td></tr>
   </table>
</center>
</body>
