This property has effect only on block-level elements or on elements with absolute or fixed position. The max-height property contains only the pure height of the visible content, without the padding, scrollbar, border and the margin.
The height of an element can never be greater than the value specified by the max-height property.
Note that this property works in Internet Explorer only from version 7.
One of the following values:
|The maximum height for the element in length units. For the supported length units, see the length page.|
|The maximum height for the element is the specified percentage of the height of the parent element.|
|Takes the value of this property from the computed style of the parent element.|
|No limit on the height of the element.|
