Yes, it is possible, but "100%" should be a string. Also, be aware of the web standards' requirement that an element with a percentage height requires a parent element with an explicitly set height. The rule applies recursively until an element with a pixel height is reached, or until the <html> element is reached.
100% hight elements cannot have borders, margins, paddings and siblings.
